Roxana High School will rededicate its auditorium this evening in the name of a longtime drama instructor at the school.  A brand new sign will hang above the entrance to The Birdine M. Groshong Auditorium, and the theater department will recognize her family that will be in attendance at this evenings show.

Groshong’s favorite play was Arsenic and Old Lace, which is on stage at Roxana High tonight at 7:00 and again tomorrow at 2pm.  Debbie Bacus is co-director of the show and says after recent renovations the old sign honoring Birdine was not initially replaced:
