One Acts Festival 2012 This Friday and Saturday
Posted April 12, 2012
Don't miss Delbarton's One Acts Festival 2012, featuring single act productions written, directed and performed by Delbarton students, Friday and Saturday April 27-28 at 8:00 pm in the Fine Arts Center. General admissions tickets are available online here ($5/student, $8/adult) and see rehearsal photos here.
Actors include Delbarton students and risk-embracing faculty members plus visiting thespians from area schools. Faculty members Ms. Stephanie Almozara and Mr. Chris Pillette are moderating and are the calm eye in a storm of dramatic, comedic and suspenseful mini plays that occasionally threatens to spin crazily out of control. Drama in the FAC! But that's the fun of student written/directed/performed material. After all, the complete works of Shakespeare started with one act (first original thought of the day) and we are entirely confident that the bard's latter day persona will pop up right before your very eyes on stage at Delbarton on either Friday or Saturday night, and possibly both.
This is Delbarton creativity at its best for a mere five dollar bill, eight dollars for more mature audience members. We have seen energy drinks that cost more than that, and they're way less healthy for you than live drama. Support your Abbey Player friends in the following One Act debuts...
Beauty and the Yeast (by Alex Baumann '15)
Fangs, Twister, and Fine Literature (by Tommy Cusano '14 and Oscar Lopez '14)
Little Falls (by Greg Keiser '12)
Open Road (by Andrew Tsukamoto '12)
Elevator Pitch (by Adam Vincent '12)
Vivis Olim Solus (by James Weldon '12, co-directed by Omar Rizwan ’12)
Three seventh grade performers also will perform original bite-sized playlets. Yes, we start them early at the Delbarton School for Underpaid Actors. But remember, Peter Dinklage '87 is an alum so there is hope.
Go Wave One Acts!
