Black Hills State University’s honorary dramatic society and oldest active/continuous student organization, recently celebrated its 90th anniversary with seven decades of BHSU alumni in attendance. The evening included a social, dinner, and entertainment, including a performance by BHSU theatre alumni. There was also a presentation on a new performing arts building that is currently in the beginning stages of planning. Paul Higbee, Class of ’76, presented a historical look at the first 90 years of Props and Liners. Joe Sarraco, Class of ’73, presented a center panel of Woodburn Hall’s original stage curtain that was last used in 1968. He acquired the curtain in the late 90s and thought the 90th anniversary celebration was the perfect opportunity to return it to the University where it will be displayed in the new Pangburn Hall Laboratory Theatre.
