The Spotlight Players One-Act Festival returns to Verona High School on Friday, May 20, at 7 p.m. The cost is $5 per person and is payable at the door.
This year’s festival, the first in person since 2019, features five one-act plays. Two of the five are not just directed by students—all of the one-acts are student directed—but also written. They are “Scenes From the DMV” by Jack McHugh and “Waiting Room” by Maddie Suk. The festival is rounded out by “Least Offensive Play in the Whole Darn World,” directed by Sofia Albanese; “Odds Are,” directed by Maura Shea and James Shorten; and “Accused of Comedy,” directed by Krystal Costa, Katie Repoli and Dionysia Yanniotis.
The show will last approximately 2 hours. Refreshments will be available for purchase, as well as the opportunity to sign up for the Spotlight Player’s annual Flamingo Flocking Fundraiser, which will take place later in the month. All monies raised will go towards the Spotlight Player’s Parent Association’s scholarship fund.
