Sixteen in Ten Minutes or Less        
by Bradley Hayward

If you've ever been a 16-year-old, known a 16-year-old, or wished you could figure out how a 16-year-old works, the ACTS Rising Stars' performance of Sixteen in 10 Minutes or Less is a show you don't want to miss.

In the play, comprised of ten 10-minute skits (including social media conversations as well as scenes that take place between various characters), the lives of several teenagers become intertwined, offering a window into the funny, heartbreaking, cruel and poignant world that is "being 16 years old." The play is authored by Bradley Hayward, a Canadian playwright from Toronto, who specializes in plays about young people.

April 10, 11 and 12 at 7:30 PM; there will also be a matinee performance on April 12 at 2:30 PM.  Tickets are $9 ($7students and seniors) and are available by calling ACTS' reservation line at 937-7770.

Join us for Dinner and a Show Saturdays this season!
