Silver Hawk Theatre just wrapped up the annual Fine Arts and Craft Fair. It took place at Lincoln Southwest High School on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.


Everything sold at the craft fair was homemade by vendors, including various products like baked goods, woodwork, glass art, candles and many more.


“We’ve been doing the craft fair every year since the school opened,” Theatre Director Bob Henrichs said. “Some of my friends at other programs had done the craft fair. I’d been teaching about 10 years before this, so I’d seen other people do a craft fair. So I used the idea and changed it to work for us.”


LSW Theatre students volunteered to set up and work at the craft fair, which happens every October and is hosted by the theatre department as a fundraiser. It took a $2 admission to get into the craft fair. The speech and the debate team ran concessions and did a bake sale to bring in money for their program.


“The theatre officers are in charge of making sure everything goes to according to plan and although this is my second year as an officer, it was my first time helping to run it since it was cancelled last year,” Drama Club President, senior Michaela Boyd said, “I loved seeing all the LSW theatre officers, student volunteers, and parent volunteers working together to make the fundraiser a success.”
