Performances are slated 3 p.m. Friday and Sunday.

Eleven actors in costumes and backed with virtual scenery will perform the five 10-minute plays.

“After rehearsing with Zoom and the internet for a while, I’m sure not all the comic surprises will come from the excellent scripts,” said director Enid Davis, who leads the Wise Owl Players, open to those age 50 and older.

The play lineup:

• “Polly,” by Ron Burch, starring Ellin Klor, MaryJo Lomax and Marc Vincenti

• “Maid Service,” by David Fleisher, starring Katherine Chappelear, Sandy Davis, Bob Johnson and Taffy Hoffman

Tracy McCloud, Avenidas Center director, serves as producer and Kat King is in charge of technology.

The event is recommended for ages 16 and older.
