A group of Verona High School students will be giving a new twist to a classic Greek love story this week. The Spotlight Players will be performing “Cupid and Psyche” at VHS on Thursday, November 11; Friday, November 12; and Saturday, November 13, and all shows are at 7:30 p.m.

The kids have apparently re-written the myth a bit. Dana Ahmuty, an english teacher who directs VHS’ theater program, won’t tell us exactly how, except to say that “Cupid hits a bump in the road when he falls in love with Psyche.” Gabi Latimer is Psyche and Austin Williams is Cupid.

Tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for students/senior citizens and can be purchased at the door the night of the show.
