HS DPAC Presents Fall Play
GAME OF TIARAS
  
When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, (who in no way resemble copyrighted characters), tragedy ensues.

Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones and the soul-numbing despair of classic Shakespearean tragedy, Don Zolidis's farcical adaptation of King Lear will make you laugh.
  
All performances are held in the Dallastown High School Auditorium.
Show dates and times are 7:00 p.m., Thursday, November 14th, Friday, November 15th, and Saturday, November 16th. Matinee performances are 2:00 p.m. Saturday, November 16th, and Sunday, November 17th.

Tickets, at $10 (premium seats), $7 adults, and $5 for senior citizens and students who present a valid ID, may be reserved online at www.dahsdpac.booktix.com or by calling (717) 244-4021, Extension 3120.
