Liberty Bell Drama presents ‘Adrift’
The Liberty Bell Drama Company will stage “Adrift,” a variety show consisting of seven 10-minute plays plus a number from a spooky Broadway musical, on Oct, 27, 29 and 30 at The Merc Playhouse in Twisp.
“Adrift” is described as “an evening of theater to put you in a darkly humorous mood in honor of the season.” It features plays by Shel Silverstein, Pete Barry, David MacGregor, Ian August, Steven Hayet, Laurie Allen and Rachael Murray.
The Oct. 27 and 29 shows start at 7 p.m.; the Oct. 30 show starts at 2 p.m. Doors open 30 minutes before show time. The show is free for all students and the families of the cast and crew; $15 for general community members. The performance is rated PG-13 because of some strong language and adult themes.
