ESCANABA, Mich. (AP) - The show must go on next year at an Upper Peninsula high school, but not with costumes and props destroyed by water in a flooded basement.

There was probably 5 feet of water in the basement last week at Escanaba High School, due to a faulty toilet and a pump failure. Principal Darci Griebel told the school board that most damage will be fixed by the start of school.

Nonetheless, retired musical director Lynn Soderberg says she looked at the basement and felt “like someone had torn a piece” of her heart. She says hundreds of costumes likely have been lost.

The Daily Press (https://bit.ly/29TQxGA ) says an insurance claim will be filed.
