Arlington High School play

Tickets are now available for the Arlington High School play, “Once Upon a Mattress,” a fun take on the “Princess and the Pea” fairytale.

Performances are 7 p.m. March 6 and 7, and 13 and 14. A matinee show is at 1 p.m. March 14. Tickets are $8 for senior citizens and students, and $10 for adults, and are available online at
