It's a story about the first female hero in literature, and the students at McDowell Intermediate School are bringing it to the stage.

The play is based on the Charlotte Bronte novel but is localized for the play.

Michael Malthaner wrote the music and orchestration, Charlie Corritore from the Erie Playhouse wrote the lyrics and David Matthews wrote the book for the play.

Malthaner, who is the director of The Center Of Performing Arts at the school says this will be his last production and added “I hope to do more in the community theater and still be involved in arts education and bring on new challenges."

Jayne Eyre will take to the stage this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 2pm
