Badin sets ‘Evening of One Acts’


Badin High School will present its annual ‘Evening of One Acts’ this coming Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 16-18, at 7:30 p.m. in the school’s Little Theatre.

Mrs. Sarah Cline, Badin’s new drama teacher, is excited about her debut behind the scenes of this annual program.

“This has been fun and the students have worked hard to put together an enjoyable evening of theater,” Cline said. “There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing young people showcase their skills on stage.”

The two one-act plays are “The True Story of Cinderella”, being performed by Badin’s Theater 2 class, and “Whodunit?”, which had an open casting call.

Senior Rachel Siemer is Cinderella, who has martyred herself into subservience and squalor while waiting for the right man to take care of her.

The “evil” stepsisters and stepmother have gotten a “bad rap” and get to tell their side of the story – and try to make sparks fly between the Prince and Cinderella just to get her out of the house! It’s a delightful twist on this all-time favorite story.

“Whodunit?” is a farce where the audience knows who the killer is – but the detectives, Mr. and Mrs. North, played by senior Benny Wang and junior Hannah Nugent, do not. An announcer gives the facts … and the experts and amateurs try to unravel the mystery as the wind blows and the lights flicker. Who did it?

Joining Siemer in the cast of “The True Story of Cinderella” are seniors Heather O’Hara and Benny Wang and junior Emily Burley.

Joining Wang and Nugent in the cast of “Whodunit” are seniors Alex Honeycutt, Maria Richards, Rachel Siemer and Claire Stiens; juniors Emily Burley, Sydney Long and Margo Hood; sophomores Max Hall, Kaitlyn Hopewell, Maddie Mills, Sarah Totten and Emma Wesner; and freshmen Kailynn Berger, Jade Everhart, Issy Helton, Hannah Riecke and Cody Wilmer.

Tickets for the shows are $5 and are available at the door.
