Annual Children’s Show Features Swiss Family Robinson




Wayne State College students presented Swiss Family Robinson on March 28 for the public, with other performances for area schools. Pirates roamed the islands on stage. The shipwrecked family created a tree home on the staged island. Plenty of adventure ensued as the family dealt with survival and pirates and learned how to live on the island. The production was directed by Dr. Gwen Jensen and designed by Mr. Michael Rohlena.
