One Act Festival Jan 24-26 7:30 pm

What's better than one Statesmen Theatre production? Three! Join us Thursday, Friday and Saturday (Jan 24, 25, 26, 2019) at 7:30 pm. The Festival includes: Someone Save My Life Tonight, 21 Chump Street and Almost Earth.

Someone Save My Life Tonight

This new play was written & directed by our theatre director Mr. DeLeo. "Someone Save My Life Tonight" is an updated riff on "It's a Wonderful Life" as a modern teen contemplates taking his own life but gets a chance to see various timelines ahead of him if he doesn't.

21 Chump Street

This mini-musical written by Lin Manual-Miranda was based on the second act of episode #457 of This American Life, titled "What I Did For Love". A high school student falls in love with an undercover police officer and is ultimately arrested for selling drugs to the officer in an attempt to impress her.

Almost Earth

In the year 2157, the planet Earth is out of resources. In response, the United Nations sends seven of the “best and brightest” candidates into space to find a new Earth. This play was written by Marshall students Elise Ebert, Kayla Johnson, Shruti Sekar, Natalie St. John, and Masha Timina.

The tickets are $5 each for the evening and will be available at the door. Cash preferred. Running time for each performance is approximately 15-30 minutes with very brief breaks between the three shows.
