The Fredericksburg High School Theatre 1 class will perform “The Marvelous Playbill,” written by Tim Kelly on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 8-9, at the FHS auditorium.

The Saturday performance will be held at 7 p.m. and the Sunday matinee will begin at 2 p.m.

General admission seating is $4 for adults and $2 for students, while faculty members and those ages 10 and under are free.

All proceeds benefit the Fredericksburg High School Drama Department.

“The play depicts a poor theatrical producer, Chanfalla, in 16th century Spain, who comes up with an unusual play to perform for the citizens of the town, Castile,” FHS drama director Randi Jackson said. “He announces that only true blooded citizens can see the performance and with that, chaos arises within the group. Human vanity cunningly makes Chanfalla and his traveling family of performers rich! This one-act comedy full of action is sure to delight all.”
