This Year's Plays:

1. Drama Geeks (by Bradley Hayward)

Synopsis

Nine over-dramatic high school students gather on a bare stage. They've been invited by a cheeky narrator who poses a question that has confused actors for generations: To be or not to be? When knowing the answer becomes the difference between chic and geek, the stakes are raised and tempers begin to flare. A couple of jokers in the tech booth add light and sound effects to the mix and it becomes every actor for themselves. Will this ensemble figure things out before it's time to raise the curtain? Nobody knows, but Shakespeare is on the edge of his seat...

2. Spoiler Alert (by Bradley Hayward)

Synopsis

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. When a loud mouth in the front row gives away the shocking conclusion to this story, the rest of the audience begins to question their motives. Is it better to know how a story ends or experience each surprise as it comes? As this debate wages on, Jack and Jill suddenly realize they have wasted their entire lives fetching water. While Jack considers climbing a beanstalk, Jill ponders what her life would be like on the other side of the footlights. How this story turns out is anybody's guess. Spoiler alert: it's not how you'd expect!
