Play Production--also known as One Act--is here for the 2015 season!
After a five-year hiatus, I'm excited to return as this year's director for Adams Central's competition one-act play. I've chosen a melodrama which presents our actors and actresses with several challenges: creating fun characters, learning comedic timing, understanding the villain-hero genre, and working as a team/cast while bringing individual characters to life on the stage.
We'll compete in a few festivals prior to LouPlatte Conference competition on Monday, November 23, in St. Paul, followed by district competition the first week in December, with State the following week at the Johnny Carson Theater in Norfolk.
We'll need some help along the way, beginning with set construction on Saturday, September 26, in the Industrial Tech Wood Shop at AC. All parents are encouraged to help build and paint our set (as this is really out of my wheelhouse of expertise!) so that our students have solid set pieces to jump on, climb over, hide behind, and move easily from venue to venue.
I'm excited to work with these talented, driven students! More later!
