Yellow Springs High School freshman Lorien Chavez happened to be in the girls bathroom at the high school last year when some cheerleaders from another school walked in. Not realizing she was there, they began commenting on how gross and unkempt the school’s main bathroom was.

If you are up for a jaunty two hours gallivanting about with pirates, daughters and policemen, find a seat in the center section at Mill Lawns Auditorium for the Yellow Springs High School production Pirates of Penzance.
