KHS Fall Play Announced

Kenston High School’s 2013 fall Center Stage production, “Acts of God,” follows 12 teenagers as they sift through the emotional wreckage thrust upon them in the aftermath of a tornado that has ravaged their community. Uniquely presented on a raked stage with shifting scenes and reinforced with rear-projected imagery, the drama by the award-winning author and playwright Mark Rigney promises to be a powerful and moving show.

According to the Evansville Courier & Press, Acts of God is an “…ever-flowing, constantly shifting, broadly ambitious examination of the emotional debris left behind by a fictional F-3 tornado…”

Performance dates are Nov. 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. in the Kenston High School Auditorium.

All tickets are $7 in advance and $8 at the door. All seats are reserved. Tickets go on sale Nov. 1.

Kenston’s National Honor Society is partnering with Kenston Center Stage and the Cleveland American Red Cross to heighten awareness of disaster relief services and to collect donations. All donations will benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Program’s mission to provide emergency aid to victims of natural disasters.
