Places, please! Shippensburg University’s Act V Theatre Co. is beginning preparations for a semester of productions with auditions for their new one-act festival.
The festival is set to include four one-act shows. Each show is student-written, student-directed and student-performed.
SU junior Michael Bradley is slated to direct “The Interview of a Lifetime,” written by sophomore Emily Sterner. The play surrounds an interview like no other — one to get into heaven.
Sophomore Kaitlyn Niski will be directing “Surviving a Day at the Library,” a play by senior and Act V President Casey Leming where librarians must contend with their patrons.
Niski also wrote “Trivial Highschool Problems,” which is being directed by senior Andrew Houpt. This play is about three students who are preparing — or not — for a test.
Finally, senior Kelsey Kohler is directing “On the Block,” written by Houpt. In this play, several characters gather around a stuffed dog on a stage and attempt to discern what brings them together.
The One Act Festival will be held Feb. 28 through March 2 in Memorial Auditorium.
