Sterling College Theatre Presents Night of One Acts This Friday
April 28, 2010
Sterling College Theatre presents its annual Night of One Acts on Friday, April 30, in Culbertson Auditorium. Eight students have been polishing their directing skills in preparation for this big night. Lauren White directs "Overtones"; Austin Blackwell directs "North of Pelican Rapids"; Mollie Cline directs "The Most Perfect Day"; David Ireland directs "Humphrey Pumphrey Had a Great Fall"; Amanda Denning directs "He's Having a Baby"; Jaci Knight directs "The Fifteen Minute Hamlet"; Kacie Rogers directs "Jerry Finnegan's Sister"; and Marcus Mull directs "Jimmy the Antichrist."
"Overtones" by Alice Gerstenberg reveals the inner workings of two women as they deal with their past choices and unresolved relationships and struggle to find happiness in their futures. The story pushes the audience to look inward and critique humanity's ability to relate, lie, love and dream. This play speaks profoundly on self-control and inner motivation.
"North of Pelican Rapids," by Greg Elsasser, is a farce that engages the audience with its Minnesota madness. When Aaron arrives to pick up his prom date, he meets her parents for the first time. While his girlfriend gets ready upstairs, Aaron and the parents drink sodas and chat--until the parents begin brandishing cap guns and staging a WWF wrestling match on the living room floor.
In "The Most Perfect Day" by Peter Ernst, the perfect couple finds the perfect picnic spinning out of control when they are visited by two strangers. This play is as cute as it is quirky.
In the dark comedy "Humphrey Pumphrey Had a Great Fall" by Alfred Greenaway, Humphrey sits in purgatory and tries to persuade the audience he is a victim of a crime. Who killed him? W
