Hamilton High School opens the 2022-2023 season by presenting A Night of One Acts. This production features multiple one-act plays presented in a close up 3/4 round staging.
Thursday and Friday, November 10 and 11 performances start at 7pm. On Saturday, November 12, a matinee performance will start at 2pm.
Comedy levels go into overdrive as we open the night with Don Zolidis’ Driver’s Test. No amount of parallel-parking practice can prepare sixteen-year-old Gail for this driver’s test. Dangerously insane, fun-loving DMV tester, Margie, is feeling the need for speed, is hot to hit the road, and
is…well, a terrible instructor. Can Gail manage to pass her test as Margie takes her on the wildest ride of her life?
Being a teenager is hard, and nobody wants to talk about it. Bradley Hayward’s I Don’t Want to Talk About It confronts the daily challenges of growing up. This series of monologue and scenes offers a look at a multitude of issues—including dealing with parents who just don’t get it,
rumors, and bullying. Using both the comedic and tragic, the gritty details of adolescence surface—exposing the things teenagers can’t, won’t, and don’t want to talk about. Due to mature themes, this one-act is recommended for ages 13 and up. There will be a short intermission
before the show, so younger audience members can exit.
After another short intermission, we close the night with Ian McWethy’s 13 Ways to Screw Up Your College Interview. When two college recruiters at a prestigious university need to fill one last spot to keep their jobs, thirteen eccentric, dimwitted, and slightly-insane high school seniors
are eager to come in for an interview. What seems like a simple task turns into a nightmare when the applicants turn out to be a reality TV star, a practicing vampire, an amateur magician, and others that are much, much worse. Each applicant’ s interview hilariously illustrates what NOT to do at a college interview.
Audiences of all ages will enjoy this entertaining night of theatre!
