Pershing Elementary students got to see quite the performance Tuesday morning.

Drama students from Lafayette High School brought storybook tales to life in a fun-filled show that included a lot of audience participation.

The drama students say they love getting the chance to perform and interact with kids, but they also hope their performance encouraged younger kids to get invoved in theatre.

"We want to open up the theatre department to younger kids and let them know that there are other options to do in high school other than sports. And you can actually have fun and do other stuff," said one student who played the "Evil Queen."

The Lafayette theatre troupe described themselves as "one big family," and hope they can inspire more people to try theatre.

The theatre troupe put on two shows at Pershing on Tuesday.

If you are looking for a nice day, that day will be Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s. The nice weather will be short lived as storms return to the forecast late Wednesday through the long Memorial Day holiday weekend.
