RLHS Presents Just Another High School Play  

The Racine Lutheran High School Theater Department will present the Bryan Starchman comedy, Just Another High School Play. The performance dates are Friday, March 2, and Saturday, March 3, at 7 p.m. 

The comedy covers nearly every angle of the typical high school play with a dose of history and improvisation thrown in for good measure.

A group of high school actors, who apparently have been abandoned by their drama teacher, have to fend for themselves opening night in front of an impatient audience. Their teacher has left them hanging because no one has been showing up to rehearsals, and no one is really quite sure what he or she is supposed to do.

The student assistant director (Bradley Bosak) and the stage manager (Jake Lightner) step in, find a box of scripts which they pass out to the cast, and try to throw something together. What follows is a rollicking show full of physical comedy, crazy props, gags, and satirical re-writings of many plays, such as Hamlet, melodramas, Little Women, A Christmas Carol, Our Town, Romeo and Juliet, and many more. Other cast members include Brianna Jaramillo, Anna Janke, Jake Tietyen, Ben Young, Kiersten Reynoso, Jesenya Vasquez-Marquez, Jill Rosborough, Christian Brill, Connor Petricek, Noah Kidd, Ben Jung, Hannah Mains, Hailey Vaughn, Hilarie Nigro, Emma Montgomery, and Brandon Dexter.

Tickets are available at the door: $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens (55+) and high school students, and middle school and grade school students are admitted free. Advance-purchase tickets can be reserved by calling the school at 637-6538. The school is located at 251 Luedtke Avenue, off Spring Street in Racine.

RLHS enters into new college partnership!

Hello RLHS Parents and Students!

As you may have heard, Racine Lutheran is entering into a new partnership with Gateway Technical College. The Industry 4.0 program will prepare students for a career in the high-demand field of Advanced Manufacturing.  The classes will augment the courses at RLHS, with the first class being offered in the fall 2018.

This program is appropriate for those who wish to pursue frontline workforce opportunities as well as those who wish to pursue four-year college degrees such as engineering.  At this point, we will consider enrolling students from the classes of 2019 and 2020.  (current sophomores and juniors)

Gateway will be hosting two Industry 4.0 High School Information Sessions next week:

Tuesday, February 20th


SC Johnson iMET Center

2320 Renaissance Blvd., Sturtevant

Thursday, February 22nd


Gateway’s Elkhorn Campus

400 County Road H, Elkhorn

High school students and their parents are invited to learn more about the growing field of Advanced Manufacturing and Industry 4.0. Gateway faculty, university partners, and area business partners will be available to discuss the future of manufacturing.

Thanks to the Gateway Foundation, two lucky students will receive a $250 tuition voucher for attending (we will draw one lucky name at the end of each information session). Additionally, the two high schools that send the most students/parents/high school staff will each receive a $500 tuition voucher (thanks to the Gateway Foundation).

Please see the attachment for information regarding the Information Nights.  RSVP online at  gtc.edu/wisconn-valley
