NORTH PLATTE, Neb. KNOP-TV "24 Hours Before Summer" hits the stage at the Fox Theatre for the 4th Annual Academy for Advanced Arts workshop.

The major of the cast members are high school students who have participated in the workshop since its inception.

This year's production is written by 2019 North Platte High School graduate and cast member Michael Richey.

"My main message I am trying to get across is for people who are worried about going into high school now or going into college, it's going to be OK, you shouldn't really worry that much about it," Richey said.

Showtimes for the play are this Saturday at 7 pm and Sunday at 2 pm.

Admission is a free will donation to support the playhouse.
