Pointing Fingers, junior Kira Griffin and senior Brady Allen argue on who the real killer is in the theatre departments production of A Games Afoot. Their annual dinner show was held on Nov 11 and 13 and invited audience members to enjoy a dinner and a show filled with mystery and murder. The show was good we sold out both nights, Allen said.

But its difficult to make sure that you are getting those grades, along with still being involved in extracurriculars and helping your community and working and just generally being a good person.”
