This is the final weekend for Portal Players Dramatic Society’s one act plays.

The series will run at the Capitol Theatre on Friday and Saturday nights, Nov. 22 and 23, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets $12 at the door.

Debra Hamilton delivers a gripping performance in Zelda: the Last Flapper, effectively capturing the spirit of this repressed artist, author and early feminist.

Zelda Fitzgerald was famed author F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife, who flickered dimly in her husband’s limelight while the happiness she searched for eluded her.

Through this storytelling in The Birth of Releasing Light Kreations, multi-faceted artist Jason Titian shares the Nuu-chuh-nulth cultural diversity and his own aboriginal culture and spirit.

Carrera Schroeder and Cody Taylor direct themselves in the short play Smoke Scenes, by Nick Zagone.
