Longhorn Theatre’s annual senior-directed plays hit center stage this week Jan. 19-21. The plays spotlight the directing and tech talents of fourth-year drama students. Each of the three one-act plays tells a short story through the artistic vision of experienced drama students.
“Murder at the Ballet,” a 1940s spoof murder mystery was written by Jeffrey Goffin. Josh Leonard will direct.
“Fear,” a psychological thriller was written by Vern Harden, and will be directed by Reno Goodwin.
“It’s Whatever,” a teen issue play with an attitude, was written and directed by Gabe Hesson.
The staging will come alive through the tech talents of Brooke Collins, Ashley Parker and Johnathon Rockwell. Because of certain mature emotional content, the Drama Department suggests pre-teens, teens and adults attend, not young children.
Longhorn Theatre has three performances scheduled: Thursday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 20 at 4 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. All performances will be in the high school auditorium.
Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for students and senior citizens.
