Senior One Act Plays

After the closing of their recent musical, Cinderella, the CBNA theatre program has promptly gotten back to work. Their new endeavor: Senior One Acts. The One Acts consist of one scene with up to six characters, all directed by seniors. Some are, in fact, senior projects.

I have had the pleasure to interview one of the student directors, Caitlin Reynolds, who’s piece is called Jumping by William Borden, and features a man (played by: Calvin Swett, grade 11) who has just been cheated on by his wife and is about to jump off a bridge when a woman (played by: Ruby Carr, grade 12) approaches him and tries to force her political views onto him, evidently causing them to fall in love. 

Caitlyn says she chose this piece because it, “Really speaks to her,” has a good message, and shows us that, “There is still love in this world.” She says she knows her actors very well and when reading the piece she saw them playing the characters. She says she can’t wait to see it all come together and is very excited for the final show. She also says that although she didn’t choose to do this as her senior project, she has wanted to direct one of the one acts since she was a freshman. Her stage manager, freshman Cassandra Clery, is equally as excited. 

Along with Jumping, there are four additional one acts. Medieval Medicine directed by Madison Bowen, The Meaning of Halloween directed by Patrick Helm, In the Waiting Room of the Ghost Placement Agency directed by Abi Pellitier, and Weekend Warriors directed by Mrs. Lent and assistant directed by Lauren Rose. 

All cast, crew and theatre friends are very excited for this newest endeavor. Please join us on December 11th in the Garrish Gym at 7pm to watch these wonderful and hilarious shows!
