Badin sets 'Evening of One Acts'

Badin High School’s annual “Evening of One Act Plays” is set for this weekend.

“It’s something we always look forward to, and the students are more than ready for another outstanding weekend of theater,” said Dr. Mark O’Hara, who moderates the One Act effort at Badin.

Shows are scheduled for Thursday and Friday, Dec. 1 and 2, at 7:30 p.m. in Badin’s Little Theatre. A Sunday matinee will take place at 2 p.m. on Dec. 4. The theater is dark on Saturday. Admission is $5 at the door.

Two shows are on tap, with some 40 student actors involved:

  • "Oz", a comedic takeoff on "The Wizard of Oz", is being performed by members of Badin’s Speech and Drama Class, which O'Hara teaches. Don Zolidi wrote the parody of the L. Frank Baum classic. Badin juniors Maria Richards and Heather O’Hara are the student directors of the play.
  • "Bad Auditions for Bad Actors" was cast via open auditions. The short play, by Ian McWethy, offers a series of hilarious, well, bad auditions by bad actors. BHS seniors Zach Tyree and Danielle Ullman are the student directors.
