With the first one act competition taking place in November, the one act team has had to work fast in order to be prepared. Costumes are starting to be found and actors were asked to have their lines memorized by Tuesday, October 26.
“Personally, I think that the one act has definitely had a rough start,” Lillian Ausk ‘24 said. “Since we have gotten the ball rolling a bit more, it is starting to go exponentially better.”
The deadline for memorizing lines was not made very strict, with most actors still carrying their scripts with them. However, all scripts should be out of the actors hands by Monday November 1.
“Thankfully, I only have one line and it’s easy to remember, but, for people like Zane, Ethan, and Seth Engleman that have a lot of lines to memorize, I think they have to go over their parts every night to get it down,” Drake Richtarik ‘23 said.
The play that has been chosen is “Greater Tuna”. It is a comedy that takes place at a radio station in the small town of Tuna, Texas. It was partly chosen because of the ability to reuse props from last year’s production of “WCKY” which was also set in a radio station.
“I think that it’s a great idea reusing things from years past,” Emily Woosley ‘23 said. “I think it is a great way to recycle and get the full use out of products.”
This production has a long way to go and a short time before it starts. The adventure is still to come and the people involved in it are excited to continue on this new journey.
“I think the play has a lot of potential,” Zane Grizzle ’22 said. “There are a ton of really funny lines that we have not realized yet, but I think the more we practice the quicker we will realize. The practices are great, not too short or long, keeping a perfect balance.”
