Some people will go to great lengths to please someone they love, even if that means jeopardizing the safety of others and taking advantage of innocent people.

Chock full of eccentric characters, David Pinski’s A Dollar is set in the roaring twenties and centers around group of lost travelers in the forest who don’t know which direction to follow. They are a spunky party who have their quirks, and a quarrel ensues. The show illustrates how greed can take over one’s rational mind. Betrayal and a need for power are triggered when the entourage discovers something in the woods that that all of them want. Come follow the travelers as they decide which direction to take at one of the scheduled performances in Peninsula College’s Little Theater.
This year’s Peninsula College Drama Class Spring Production is comprised of two classes. Tech Theater Production students design the sets and lighting, while Acting 1 and 2 classes serve the actors. Both classes vote on a selection of plays to narrow the decision down to the two most popular. This allows the students to enjoy the script they are working on, rather than it being picked for them, according to Dr. Lara Starcevich, who instructs both courses.
“My role in the tech class is helping to paint the set and working on the lighting design,” Zafirah Azmy, a student majoring in finance at PC said. “It’s all about teamwork, and your tasks can switch often since we are such a small tech team.”
Performances will run May 31 – June 2 and June 7 – 9 at 7:30 p.m. with a preview May 30 at noon, and a matinee June 6 at noon. The performances are free and open to the public.
