A special Renton Civic Theater preview performance of “The Mystery of Irma Vep – A Penny Dreadful” on Oct. 20 will benefit the “Save Renton Pools” fund.

The fund benefits the upkeep of Hazen High School’s pool, which escaped closure for the 2011-2012 school year.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door.

The save the pools campaign came in the wake of school officials finding themselves without $60,000 needed to operate the pools at Hazen and Lindbergh high schools for the year.
