"An Evening of One Act Plays"

"An Evening of One Act Plays" opens on the Empress Stage on Fridady,April 18, 2008. Performance dates are every evening from April 18 tp Moday, April 26, 2008. Friday and Saturday tickets are $8, Monday through Thursday, $7. Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:00.

These plays were written by local Salt Lake area High School students, and we are very excited to be performing these original works at the Empress. I can't tell you a lot about them other than this: there are three comedies and one drama.

I've read the drama and one of the comedies, and I can't wait to see how the directors treat them. The drama, entitled Casulties was written by Megan Chase. It is a story of hiding secrets and seeking forgiveness that is surprisingly insightful for something written by a high school student.

The other script I've read is titled If the Shoe Fits, and is set in a fairy-tale kingdom, complete with, at least for now, a magic mirror.

You won't want to miss these four locally written and produced plays!

Another of the comedies is entitled What's Unforgettable? It's about a girl with a crazy 98-year-old great aunt and a boyfriend whose psycho ex-girlfriend is trying to get him back... Fun stuff!
