South Fulton High School’s Drama Club will present “The Knights of the Rad Table” by Pat Lydersen at 7 p.m. Dec. 3 in the school gymnasium.
Admission is $3 per person, with children ages 5 and younger admitted free.
The play is being presented by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service Inc. of Englewood, Colo.
In the play, on a typical day in the park, a teenage girl named Gwen is reading one of her favorite books as her friend Artie approaches, doing tricks on a skateboard. After time passes, the known wizard Merlin awakes from a 1,500-year sleep and takes them both back in time to the time of chivalry and honor.
During the exquisite days of the legendary King Arthur, Artie becomes the crowned king of England and meets his royal knights as Gwen stays aside, meeting Lancelot. When wicked witch Morgan La Fey finds there is a new king, she kidnaps him and leaves his gawky but faithful knights to go on a mission to save him, as well as overcome many obstacles.
