RV’s performing arts program marks history

Staff Report

BIDWELL — River Valley High School is marking a point in the history of its performing arts program.

Since its birth in the fall of 1992, River Valley has attempted and succeeded to establish a program devoted to stage performance of plays and musicals. The roots of this program began in 1989 at North Gallia High School in Bidwell.

The directorship of the program will change hands this spring from veteran Cynthia Graham to Allyson Johnston and tribute will be paid to all those performers who were part of building this entity thus far. A commemorative program is being designed to feature the names of those who wish to purchase a space in that program. Those who pay the $10 to be listed will receive a commemorative program free of charge. The program will become a piece of history for the school and the district.

A form can be obtained from, and dropped off at, River Valley High School, along with a check for $10. If paying with a check, make the check simply to “RV.”

The program will be available at the performances of “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,” set to debut on the Ariel Theatre stage in Gallipolis on May 6-7 at 7:30 p.m. Forms must be received by April 22.

For more information, contact Graham or Amy Stanley at the school, 740-446-2926.
