Baldwin High's big one-act play this Sunday
The Baldwin High Fine Arts program is celebrating spooky season in style, rolling out its "Nevermore" one-act play to the public this weekend.
The show is all set for 3 p.m. on Sunday and will take place at the Baldwin High Fine Arts Center, which was added to the BHS campus during the school's most recent renovation. The Fine Arts Center, one of the best places in middle Georgia to watch a production, "is home to a state-of-the-art, 1,000 seat auditorium and is host to many school and community productions each year. The Baldwin Fine Arts Center is complete with a full-size orchestra pit, audio & lighting booth and even has rigging allowing our students to get a little acrobatic in their productions."

"Nevermore is about a boat ride that Edgar Allen Poe takes, where he meets a bunch of want-to-be actors, who all then ask him if they may re-tell his life before his very eyes, and he's horrified by the results," said senior Robinson York, one of the stars of the production.
Added first-year BHS Theater Director Kenneth Jones: "Production is special, because it's dark and creepy and weird and something new for (the students)."
