Act One to present "A Night of Scenes"
Cowley College students will perform “A Night of Scenes” Monday,
December 7 at 7 p.m. inside the Robert Brown Theatre.
The short one act scenes are all student directed and acted. Tickets are $2 with the proceeds going to help the Act One Drama Club with various shows and activities.
Cowley College theatre director, Scott MacLaughlin, said the actors and audience will be situated on the Robert Brown Theatre stage. About 100 chairs will be placed on the stage so the audience will be close to the actors.
“This makes for a much more intimate theatrical experience,” MacLaughlin said.
There are four student directors in charge of putting together a cast and crew as well as a short scene. MacLaughlin believes the scenes are geared more towards adults/college students.
“The content is a little more dramatic and there is a significant amount of intensity in a couple of them,” MacLaughlin said.
Along with “A Night of Scenes”, Act One Drama Club members are involved with the school play and musical. The club also sponsors “Puttin’ on the Hits (lip-sync contest) and Mr. Cinderfella.
