Riverdale holding one-act series in LO

Riverdale High School’s Drama Club will present “A Festival of One Act Plays” next week at the Lakewood Center for the Arts.

The club is trying something new by putting together six one-act plays instead of one full-length play, said Heather Crow, Riverdale School District marketing and communications coordinator. The event includes the Abbott and Costello classic “Who’s On First?” routine, as well as David Ives’ “The Mystery at Twicknam Vicarage.”

Plays touch on murder, The Twilight Zone, comedy and more. The other one-acts are: “Captive Audience,” “Arabian Nights,” “Soap Opera” and “The Philadelphia.”

Showings are scheduled for 7 p.m. May 18-20 at the Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 S. State St.

Tickets are $5 at the door.
