We are less than one week away from the 5th Annual One Act Festival @ Rosedale Community Players and the cast and crew has been given the weekend off to celebrate Labor Day after a productive “Hell Week”.
We have a great variety of pieces this year including one that is sure to tug at your heart strings: The Armadillo in the Room, which is written by Sarah Willis. Sarah comes to us with many years of experience in theatre as well as having two other one acts previously produced elsewhere:
When the Curtain Falls – The plagues of life follow both the children and adults at the North Star Children’s Theatre, but there they discover that the love of a family can heal, and a family isn’t always what they expect.
Hammie: Shakespeare’s Hamlet in Twenty Five Hilarious Minutes – Prince Hammie returns to Elsinore Castle from Michigan State University to find that “something is rotten in the state of Denmark.” His father’s ghost implores him to avenge his murder… madness ensues. Lia wants to date Hammie, but does he want to date her? Laertes dispenses brotherly advice and plots with King Claudius. Fortinbras invades… sort of. Queen Gertude knits her troubles away. Yorick returns from the dead. Horatio observes.
