AHS Night of One Acts

Night of One Acts


The Anna High School Drama Club is proud to present the 56th annual Night of One Acts on Thursday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 4th. Three one-act comedies will be presented at 7:00 pm in Milliette Auditorium. The first play is Murder at the Banquet and is directed by Maddox  Deeren. In this play, an awards banquet for the International Association of Mystery Solvers turns deadly when the host is murdered and the prize money goes missing. It’s up to the attendees to piece together the bizarre clues and solve the mystery! Marlie Barhorst directs the second play, All Chime In. Things have been going so well in Rob and Jen’s relationship that after a few months of dating, Rob is ready to propose. His romantic proposal is interrupted by the unsolicited advice of everyone in the restaurant including a sassy waitress, Rob’s ex-girlfriend, a lawyer, a wedding planner, a couple of robbers and the police. Their special night is turned into a free-for-all event. The third play is The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong and is directed by Miranda Evans.  The inept and accident-prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society embark on producing an ambitious 1920s murder mystery. Hilarious disaster ensues and the cast starts to crack under the pressure. Can they get the production back on track before the final curtain falls?

We invite you to come and spend an evening laughing, smiling, and enjoying these three comedies. Tickets are $8 and will be available at the door. Don't miss this hilarious evening of theater!
