Take the peace train

The Hillside Youth Theater is riding the Peace Train to The Underground.

The group is putting on its 15th production, “All Aboard the Peace Train,” based on people who changed the world. The kids, ages 8 to 16, spent the summer in a theater camp learning the original play and creating the scenery and costumes for the show.

More than 50 children will present the play today and Friday at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Today’s show is preceded by a special fundraising event that begins at 5 p.m. with appetizers, music and a silent auction with a $15 donation.

The performances are free but donations are accepted.
