Senior theatre students at A.C. Flora High School will perform The Bad Seed, a dramatic thriller set in the 1950s, February 9–10 at 6:30 p.m. in the school’s Black Box Theatre, Room 805.

The Maxwell Anderson play, based on a novel by William March, tells the story of mother Christine Penmark and her seemingly perfect eight-year-old daughter Rhoda. Rhoda has a secret dark side, and when a classmate of Rhoda’s mysteriously dies, Christine must face the truth about her child.

Tickets for the show are $5 at the door and $2 for students.
