Worst school play billed as best entertainment



Looking for a night of dinner and fine entertainment? Don't leave town.

dTC This weekend, the North County Knight-Time Players of North County High School will present its dinner-theater production, "Ivanha -- The Worst High School Play in the World."

"Ivanha" opens in the Kingdom of Saxonia, where King Isador, departing for the Crusades, leaves behind Queen Nina (Amanda Gillis), Princess Corsicana (Wendy Bolly) and Ivanha (Ben Shanks), heir to the throne.

Isador's brother, Viscera (Matt Robey), yearning to be king, secretly plots along with the wizard Medulla (Rich Collins) to destroy Ivanha.

Nina, fearing for her son's life, leaves Ivanha in the forest with hopes that the squirrels will take care of him. Eventually, after seeing his reflection in water, Ivanha realizes that he is not a squirrel and is later taken to the abbey by Friar Fred (Brandon Owens). Lady Lenore (Megan Miller), unwillingly prepared to marry Viscera, finds him there and the two immediately fall in love. Ivanha must then battle Viscera for the throne and for Lady Lenore, his true love.

This show promises an exciting finish.

A spaghetti dinner with salad and dessert will be served.
