Solon High School Seniors Take the Director Chair to Stage One-Act Plays This Week
Monday, February 09, 2015

The Solon High School Drama Club is staging its annual "Evening of One-Acts," February 12 and 13, at 7 p.m. in the SHS auditorium. All tickets are $6 and proceeds benefit the Drama Club Scholarship Fund.

Tickets are available online at solon.es/oneacts or at the door on the night of the shows.

The One-Act Plays are all student-directed by Solon High School seniors.

This year’s program features:

“Mirrors” – a foray into a man’s thoughts and reflections on his life that leaves the audience to determine the line between reality and fantasy. Directed by Conshea Brown & Taylor Parker.

“Why Do We Laugh?” – a play about love and the way people change one another after a lifetime together. Directed by Brett Castro & Mackie Corrigan.

“Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit” – the stories of two separate yet equally ridiculous groups: the fairy tale police who investigate fairy tale crime and the fairy tale district attorneys who prosecute the fairy tale offenders. Directed by Nate Chernomorets & Rachel Kapusta.

“That’s Not How I Remember It” – a zany homage to bad ‘80s movies and the inadequacies of memory. Directed by Audrey Leach & Ethan Newburger.
