Black Hills State University Theatre Department will be performing "Letters from the Past" Oct. 16-18 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 19 at 2:30 p.m. in the Woodburn Theatre.      

The production was written by Jessica Juhrend, sophomore speech communications major from Spearfish; choreographed by various theater students; and is under the musical direction by Mary McGillivray, senior composite music major from Sheridan, Wyo.  The story is about a student writing a paper on the history of her school.  She discovers letters from students describing the school.  Each decade depicted will be accompanied by a musical number.
