AHS Spring Play
Coming soon to Arcadia High Done to Death  AHS's production of "Done to Death" is coming up on April 11 - 13. The show follows several different mystery writers as they come together to try and write the perfect mystery - but hilarity ensues as their different writing styles start to clash.  

The students rehearsed for four months and the tech crew is comprised of Arcadia students. "People should definitely come see it. It's so funny, they'll die of laughter - pun intended," said Arcadia theater crew member Grace Woehler. Admission is $5.  For more:  arcadia.susd.org .
