The weekend of Jan. 31-Feb. 1, Huntley High School will present its annual “One Act Plays Festival” for two evening performances. The event is free and open to the public.
Nine one act plays, directed by junior and senior students and performed by freshman and sophomore theatre students, will be featured.
The student directors that signed on to lead actors in their interpretation of the plays include juniors Logan Blake, Luke Bucaro, Donna Fondjo, Riley Hagberg, Patricia Swierczek, and Zach Szeszol; and seniors Zyana Cola, Abby Godek, Riley Hagberg, Lauren Krelle, Erin Richardson, Tori Smolen, Lizzie Sullivan, and Patricia Swierczek.
Christine DeFrancesco, drama teacher will serve as the festival’s producer.
Huntley’s theatre program has grown tremendously over the past several years and we are proud to offer students several curriculum-based classes as well as many extra-curricular opportunities to sing, perform, dance, and assist on the school’s Technical Crews. Huntley High School annually produces one straight play, one all-school musical, a Thespian show, an Improv Night, a one act plays festival, and participates in competition theatre and group interpretation.
This year’s directors are excited to share a great lineup of student plays that are sure to entertain audiences. Performances will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1 in the Commons Area (enter through Door #1 – Main Entrance).
