One-Acts take on a variety of performances
- Published: February 15, 2012
When the stage lights up at Mills Lawn this Friday night, Yellow Springs High School Drama Club is sure to elicit laughter and surprise when the students present their annual One-Act plays. This year’s show includes original works, including a Sherlock Holmes radio play written by local resident Kay Reimers and a parody of a Republican presidential primary debate. And for the first time this year, the event will also feature a variety of other performances, including belly dancing, juggling, poetry, flipping offstage, playing guitar with a bear, and a dance number, “Shakin at the High School Hop,” from this year’s spring musical, Grease.
The evening will be hosted by Colton Pitstick as master of ceremonies. One-Acts coordinator Ara Beal and Theater Arts Association Board President Moira Laughlin have helped the students stage their pieces, but as usual, the sponsors encourage parental discretion for younger audience members.
The single performance this Friday, Feb. 17, at 8 p.m. at the Mills Lawn auditorium is the drama club’s biggest annual fundraiser. Tickets cost $5, with proceeds going to the drama club.
