Forty Baylor Middle School students will be part of the cast and crew of Snow Angel, a play by David Lindsey Abaire, to be presented Thursday-Saturday in Baylor's Roddy Theater. 

According to Middle School drama instructor and Snow Angel director Allison Lamb, "The students build and paint the sets, run lights and sound, design the art for playbills and sweatshirts, and run the entire show once the play opens." Ms. Lamb is assisted by Middle School English instructor Carlene West. 

In Snow Angel, the quiet town of Deerpoint, Vt. is hit by the biggest blizzard in 107 years. A mysterious girl named Eva steps out of a snow bank and into the lives of 15 confused teenagers who are asked to help her in her search. What Eva's searching for - and who she truly is - becomes a mystery that baffles, divides, and energizes the teens of Deerpoint. Told through journal entries and interactions among the students over the course of a single snow day, Snow Angel is a funny and eerie tale of teen angst, discovery, and the power of believing. 

Showtimes for Snow Angel are: Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and a matinee Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
