Event Tickets


The One Acts Festival is here! May 23 through May 27 in the Gumption Theater. The One Acts Festival comprises original plays written and directed by four Seniors, and features actors from all grades and acting experience backgrounds. 



The OGs vs Thatcher - written and directed by Evelyn K
A case in which the Court will decide whether the superhero league, The OGs, must be held responsible for the damages they caused to a nearby neighborhood during a battle to save Grand Central Station.

As a friendly disclaimer, this is entirely a parody. For anyone who is familiar with the law, it is not at all accurate, but this is definitely on purpose. This does not represent what actually happens in a courtroom.

Cast: Eliot S, Nina O, Lucia F, Jules B, Blue K, Laurel S, Seila B, Lindsey B

The Newsroom written and directed by Tulin C-M
Ever wonder what happens on a school newspaper? Even if you haven't, this play will give you a window into the incredibly professional and passionate world of The Urban Legend. Fall in love with the eccentric and probably overly-cliche characters as they scramble to put out an issue of the newspaper. You too could become inspired to be a legend on The Legend. 

Cast: Zoya S, Viva W, Marina MLF, Daisy M, Romy Z, Eamon M, and Minna L

Scream Part 2867 written and directed by Charlotte S 
Get ready to scream (and cringe) with "Scream Part 2867". When a group of old childhood friends reunite for an awkward birthday party, they quickly discover that some things never change - like crushes that just won't die. But when a mysterious figure starts tormenting the group, they'll have to put their love lives on hold and fight for their survival. With scares so intense, you'll be jumping out of your seat, "Scream Part 2867" is the horror comedy that will have you laughing and screaming at the same time. Don't miss out on this heart-pounding tale of unrequited love and suspenseful revenge. Just make sure to bring someone you trust to hold onto (or use as a human shield - we won't judge).

Cast: Kaia G, Lucia F, Nina O, Zia D, Tara M, Diego V-S, Ella M 


The Late Show - created and directed by August W
The Late Show is a mix of reality television and theatre – reality theatre – and makes us wonder who is and is not a part of the show. It explores how social norms change during performance and the ethics and expectations of interactive theatre.

Cast: Paris C, Jack F-K, Asher A, Alex K, Xanthe P 

Tech: Lindsey B, Alex L, Paris C, Nina O, Anushka C, Ally R, Miren C, Riva H, Lily H, Cedar M
