Students Shine in Act One

High school students recently entertained the community with the One Act Play Fall Festival, produced by district teachers Michael Moriarty and Kristen Wallace. Students performed seven short plays, each directed by a student stage director who chose their respective casts from a talented pool of high school thespians.

The young actors met every day after school to rehearse scenes and perfect their roles in such artistically challenging plays as “The Lottery” by Brainerd Duffield, “The Most Dangerous Game” by Burton Bumgarner and “The Banana Trial” by Eddie Zipperer. The festival showcased the students’ diverse acting skills and took the audience on journeys to the darkness of mankind's soul, the obstacles of romance, the silliness of human behavior and the bond of lifelong friendships.
