Starting on February 8th, 2013, Old School Theatre presents An Evening of One Acts. Three comedies will be performed each evening featuring typing chimpanzees, teenage zombies, and the clerk at your favorite local bookstore chain.
Oprah made Me Do It, written by Bradley Hayward and directed by Joseph Voigt, tells of two women (Annie Rice and Kelly Grounds) at a bookstore who fight to the death over the last copy of Oprah Winfrey’s latest bestseller. Caught in the middle of their feud is a lowly cashier (Mark Pelletier), trying desperately to please both women without becoming their target.
Words, Words, Words, written by David Ives and directed by Michael Lentzen, recalls the philosophical adage that three monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The three apes, Milton, Kafka and Swift (Sherry Mann Johnson, Angelo Conte, and Deanna Collins), humorously converse with each other in order to understand the purpose of the exercise forced upon them.
When a nuclear apocalypse hits on prom night, there are only four survivors: a cruel and popular cheerleader, a music-obsessed emo boy, the star quarterback, and his socially hopeless geek sister (Chaz Egnew, Austin Rhoads, Abigail Nichols, Kyra Smith, Becka Prevette, Jade Peppers). It’s Promageddon. Trapped in a high-school basement, these four kids are forced to socialize with the very people they wouldn’t have been caught dead with just hours earlier. As they struggle to figure out their next move, they discover that the mysterious secrets they’ve each kept hidden from the rest of the world could be the keys to their survival. This hilariously dark comedy was written by Dan Dietz and will be directed by Austin Rhoads.
Performance dates are February 8, 9, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23. All shows start at 7pm and take place in the Old Spring Hill High School, 1220 School Street. For more info or to purchase tickets, visit www.oldschooltheatre.org or call (931) 486-3344.
