The Royal Players opens its 20th season this Thursday with the production of a theater classic, "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder.
The play is a tribute to the group's original production in 1994 when it began as the Central Arkansas Community Players.
Directing the current production is Lisa Goodrich.
Performances will continue through Sunday of this week and will be repeated Oct. 16, 17, 18 and 19. Show time is 7 p.m. except for the Sunday matinees that begin at 2.
All performances are at the historic Royal Theatre in Downtown Benton.
The Benton School District will present the annual report to the public on Monday, Oct. 13, during the regularly scheduled school board meeting.
The report documents the district's progress in meeting the requirements set forth by the Arkansas Department of Education's Standards of Accreditation, according to Superintendent Jeff Collum.
