LUCC Members Yoko Nogami and Roxanne McGlashan worked with students at the Pinellas County Center of the Arts at Gibbs High School in St. Petersburg to turn the lobby of the school’s theater into an extension of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris for the school’s production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, staged through Friday at 7pm. Portraits of 103 students and staffers who were the victims of school shootings, from the 1999 columbine High School shooting to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS are part of the installation. For tickets call (727) 893-5452, ext. 2029.
