KEENE VALLEY - At 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, the Keene Central School Forensics Team will present a staged reading of Stanley Rutherford's absurdist comedy, "Tables and Chairs."
The KCS Forensics Team has already been to its first tournament of the year, taking first place in two events at the Northern New York Forensics League gathering held at the Parishville-Hopkinton Central School near Potsdam:
Keene Central is one of two schools in Essex County and one of a handful in the Adirondack Park that participate in forensics, which tests students' ability in public speaking and drama and which is a great skill-builder for college, job interviews, work responsibilities, and other fundamental aspects of adult life.
In addition to Balzac, Day, and Smith, other performers at the Nov. 4 fundraiser will include: Liza Amirault, Peter Craig, Brianna Joannette, and Jonah Wu of Taiwan, one of six students attending KCS this year as part of a new international program at the school.
The cast plans to put their own spin on this already humorous play and serve it up with a wide assortment of desserts.
The presentation will take place in the auditorium at Keene Central School, 33 Market St., just off state Route 73 in Keene Valley. Admission is $5, and all proceeds will go to help fund the team's upcoming tournament appearances.
