BHS returns student-crafted ‘Winter One Acts’

Bainbridge High School’s annual “Winter One Acts” play festival will conclude with the final two performances next week.

The performances, rescheduled due to snow, are Wednesday, Feb. 27 (afternoon preview) and Thursday, Feb. 28 (evening show) in the campus’ large group instruction theater.

The production will feature nine theatrical shorts written and produced completely by local students.

“This program supports our original playwrights here at BHS, showcasing original student plays and featuring student directors, actors, tech crew, and musical performers,” said Theater Club advisor Barbara Hume. “The plays this year feature themes exploring sexual orientation, dating, parodies of sci-fi stories, family dynamics, and playful works of the imagination that defy categories.”

Featured plays were selected by a committee of students and faculty from a total of 40 submissions.

The program is a major fundraiser for the theater program to support the cost of producing the upcoming spring musical. Tickets, $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors, are available at the door.
