OHS Spring Play to showcase student writing, directing, acting

Travis Dominick seeks advice from Andrew Bornheimer in a scene from “Abuse”, one of the half-dozen student-written and directed plays that will premiere (tonight) Friday, April 6 at Oswego High School. The Oswego High School Drama Club will present an evening of student written, directed, and acted plays on April 6 & 7, 7:30 PM at the Robinson-Faust Theater at Oswego High School.
 
This evening of short, original plays closes a dynamic theatrical season for OHS, which began with the world premiere of “Knight of Swords,” written by drama club co-advisor Garrett Heater, followed by the musical thriller “Sweeney Todd” in February. 
 
“For the spring show, co-advisor Robert Dumas and I wanted the students to experience all the aspects of creating a piece of theatre for the first time,” said Heater.
 
Heater started the process by leading workshops in directing, acting, and play writing. The students participated in several readings of their new plays, which included talk-backs with their casts and several re-writes.
 
“It’s been very exciting watching the students display so much creativity during this process,” said Heater. “The range of play topics are deeply personal to the student authors and cover a wide-range of emotions and styles.”
 
Graduating senior Leah Mullen has penned a play about a woman’s struggle with manic depression.
 
 What appears at first to be a one-woman show, led by Abigail Cook, morphs into a two-person play, as Cook unexpectedly speaks with a hallucination, played by Kathleen McGreevy.
 
Graduating senior Jack Lee has written a one-man comedy starring Nolan Callahan, focusing on one man’s hilarious and touching afternoon while working at a Subway.
 
These pieces are directed by Allison Griffin and Sierra Palmer, respectively.
 
 Other original plays include “Abuse” written by Alexandra Reith, directed by Gretchen Dowd, starring Travis Dominick and Andrew Bornheimer; “Jane Doe” written by Veronica Jones, directed by Melanie Solano, starring Grace Hoffman and Aidan Thompson; and a comedy written by Noah Elkin, directed by Olivia Henderson, starring Mary Bornheimer, Liam Tovey, and Audrey Hinman. The run time for the collection of new plays is about 60 minutes.
 
Admission is free and open to the public – a good will donation will be accepted at the door.
