Twenty-five high school students from Polk and Spartanburg Counties attended Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado performed by the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players at Bob Jones University through the Wheaton Fund at Tryon Fine Arts Center.  North Carolina students pictured above were joined in Greenville by a group of drama and chorus students from Landrum High School.  The students had dinner together at a Japanese restaurant in Greenville before the comic opera began. The opera program, being revived as part of Arts in Education at Tryon Fine Arts Center, was begun 30 years ago by Jack and Margaret Wheaton to help provide young people with cultural opportunities normally associated with larger cities.
