A student directed one-act play was hosted by the Newton Drama Department at the band shell of Athletic Park over the weekend — a production that was delayed in the spring when COVID-19 led to the closure of school buildings statewide.


The show, called "Zoo Story," was directed by student Jacob Phillips.


The two characters in "Zoo Story" – Peter, played by Tryston Mitchell; and Jerry, played by Creed Ekerberg – meet in Central Park and embark upon a conversation that includes probing personal questions and rambling stories.


Admission to the show was by donation.
