The public is invited to join Artesia Police Department officers and Artesia Fire Department firefighters and EMS as they enjoy “The Stage Troll,” directed by Kandese Green. The short play will begin at 12:10 p.m. and will end in time for audience members to make it back to work. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch.
