SHS play to debut Thursday

SIKESTON - It is a message as important today as it was when it was penned by Miguel de Cervantes in the 17th century.

"I think the message is needed today," said Barbara Shriver, director of the Sikeston High School's production of "Man of LaMancha." "We have a tendency to look for the bad. Don Quixote tells us differently. He want us to see things -- maybe not how they are but as how they should be."

The message will be brought to life in three performances scheduled Thursday through Saturday at the Sikeston High School Field House.
