Henrico County entertainment
A Henrico High School student was one of eight students from Virginia selected as a 2015 student playwright as part of the School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community's 26th annual New Voices for the Theater Festival of New Works, which will be held July 10-11 at VCU.
Elaina Riddell of the Center for the Arts at Henrico HS will join the other students and bring her original one-act play to life on stage at the event. In total, 150 plays were submitted to SPARC. Riddell and the other winners will work closely with New York City-based professional playwright Bruce Ward for the event.

Brookside Grille and Bar comes with a simple mission in mind: to provide great dishes prepared with the finest ingredients using as many local products as possible. When I hear “local products,” I get excited; I’m a native Richmonder, and it’s important to me.
