  • The ARHS Theater Company continues its 3-play season this fall of COVID theater-making by inviting you this weekend to Everybody, a 90-minute outdoor production at ARHS.  Written just a couple of years ago by Brandon Jacobs-Jenkins, one of the starts of the contemporary black playwrights movement that's helping redefine American theater, Everybody is a strange and delightful play that asks the biggest of questions: how do we want to look back on our lives and how we chose to live them?  
    Performances are this Saturday and Sunday, with 6pm and 8pm showings. Tickets are only available in advance here.  There will be an audience size limit, and mask-wearing and social-distancing is required.  Find our stage by parking in the athletics lot behind the school.  This is a seated show where we'll ask you to bring your own seat!  A lawn chair or similar might be perfect (although we'll have a few on hand if you need).
