Students in the Portales High School dramatic arts program are working hard on their latest stage production “Calamity Jane” the annual spring musical.

Student performers have been rehearsing since January for the three-day play, which starts March 20.

The musical comedy involves 35 students volunteering their time to run the lights, act and build the sets for the program. It is also a combined effort involving the dramatic arts, choir and band departments.
