YUHSD staff and students part of Yuma Community Theater’s season-opening production

When Yuma Community Theater’s first production of the 2018-19 season opens next month, there will be a number of contributing Yuma Union High School District students and staff members involved.

The production of Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None,” which opens Friday, Nov. 2, is directed by San Luis High School English teacher Terri Grant.

Kofa High School student Alana Witherington, SLHS senior Joey Avila, SLHS alumnus Rebecca Avila and Vista Alternative High School Math teacher Christopher Franey will be performing on stage, while SLHS Art teachers Jean Davidson and Lorena Gutierrez-Casaus painted a backdrop for the set.

“I am so honored to be part of this production and to see so many from YUHSD involved, students and staff included,” Grant said. “I am particularly excited that two of my former drama students are in the production.”

Performances will be held Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m., beginning Nov. 2 and running through Nov. 18 at Pecan Grove Elementary School.

Pecan Grove is located at 600 S. 21st Avenue in Yuma. Tickets can be purchased at Fretworks at the Yuma Palms Mall or by visiting
