At Reservoir High School, the fall play is one that is sure to make your emotions run the full gamut.

We have to refrain from revealing the title because of a legal rights limitation, but it’s a theatrical adaptation of a Mark Haddon book by acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens.

Christopher, the protagonist, is a 15-year-old young man gifted in mathematics but poorly equipped to handle everyday life. He discovers the neighbor’s dog has been killed after being speared by a pitchfork.

He finds himself under suspicion for the act and decides to find out the truth. Forbidden to continue his investigation by the authorities, but especially by his father, Christopher doggedly pursues and documents the clues he discovers as he pursues his quarry. Showtimes are at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23 with a matinee performance on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 online (rhsstage.booktix.com) and $14 at the door.

Fulton Elementary School’s Socktober was a tremendous success. The final week of the sock drive saw the students bringing in 231 pairs of socks. The first and second grades brought in the most for that week. Outstanding! The final tally for the socks: over 1,665 pairs. That’s a lot of warm feet.
