Theatre presents “Zoo Story”

   In a quiet pocket of New York’s Central Park, two dissimilar men have a chance meeting. A story of modern angst and urban isolation, “The Zoo Story” is a one-act play that reveals the lives of its two characters in just over 50 minutes and shocks its audience with a surprising twist at the end.

The box office will open at 6:45 p.m. each night of the performance. General admission is $3. The performances will be Feb. 26-28, beginning at 7 p.m.
