POLAND – Poland Regional High School will be one of the sites for the Regional High School One Act Play festival on March 5 and 6.

Nine schools will be performing at the festival, competing for the privilege to be the regional representative at the divisional state festivals later in the month.

Performing Friday night, starting at 7 p.m. are these schools: Old Orchard (“What Goes Around Comes Around”), Noble (“Drive-In”), Westbrook (“The Boys Next Door”) and Traip Academy (“The Fall of the City”).

Saturday afternoon shows start at 1:30 p.m. and feature Fryeburg Academy (“The Importance of Being Ernest”), Marshwood (“After Liverpool”) and Catherine McAuley (“Jane Eyre, Life at Lockwood”). On Saturday at 6:30 p.m. the schools will be Poland (“The Crucible”) and Biddeford (“An Evening of Culture”). The shows follow each other at approximately forty-five minute intervals.

The festival is open to the public but audience members are being encouraged to arrive early since there is limited seating. Admission is $7 for an adult and $4 for a student for each session. The admission money goes to the Maine Principals’ Association to cover the cost of the festival and to promote student activities around the state. FMI: call D’Arcy Robinson at 998-5400, ext. 218.
