Tickets Available for Interactive Virtual Play
The Patriot Theatre Company’s virtual production of ‘The Compass’ will be held in March. Because of the interactive nature of this production, only 100 tickets per show are available and tickets can now be reserved online for the following showtimes:
- Friday, March 5 at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, March 6 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
- Sunday, March 7 at 2 p.m.
Please note that this play is recommended for mature audiences only, as it confronts issues such as racism and school violence.
A central component of ‘The Compass’ is a trial that determines the fate of a teenager who used an app to make a life-altering decision. In this play, every show will end differently depending on what the audience decides. See why Stevenson students feel this play is an important show for our community in this student-created video and please see the Fine Arts Event webpage for future updates about this production.
