Come out and support the back to back region one act drama champions from Pickens High School Theatre this Thursday, October 18 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, October 20 at 9 a.m. The talented students will present the chilling true story of The Drowning Girls.
This gripping story unfolds as "the brides of the Bath," Katie Burdett, Hannah Hardison and Lila McArthur, reveal their tragic fates to the audience.

It is directed by Valerie Boehm and Kelley Wilson. Tickets for the Thursday show will be sold at the door and are $8 for adults and $5 for students.
A public performance of the show will take place at the Georgia High School Association One Act Play Competition on October 20th at 9 a.m., hosted at Pickens High School. Admission to the play competition is free. After the PHS performance, four additional high schools will present plays and awards will be presented at 4:30 p.m
