DDHS thespians will present their fall plays this Friday, October 25, at 7 p.m., and on Saturday, October 26, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
The shows will be held in the DDHS Auditorium. Tickets are general seating ($5 for adults/$3 for students and senior citizens) and are available at the door 30 minutes prior to show time.

Here’s a look at the plays you’ll see:
A Simple Task by Alan Haehnel – Empie has a simple first assignment at her new job: Retrieve a box of merchandise for the Boss. But what do you do when the box is blocked by a parade of confusing characters, your Boss keeps changing identities, and your whole career starts to feel absurd? Presented through special arrangement with Playscripts.org.
The Boy Who Changed The World by Patricia Malongo — A prehistoric teenager has a problem: he is flunking fighting, hunting, and fishing and he faces the certain death of exile. To impress glamorous Dorothy, he invents painting, poetry, and music – all humiliating failures. Just in time to save himself, he invents the wheel and the villagers reward him with the status of manhood; it even looks as if his father will be elected mayor after all. Dorothy is available now, but George has learned the meaning of love and chooses another. Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, NY, NY
