The full cast of The One Act Play that Goes Wrong
OCT. 24, 2022— Some Pal-Mac High School students put on three straight nights of entertainment as part of their performance of "The One-Act Play that Goes Wrong."
The roughly hour-long performance in the Performing Arts Classroom featured no intermission, just laughs and a little bit of mystery.
Described as a "Play within a play," the performance tells the story of a drama club society, their lackluster past performances, and their desperate attempts to work through one stage disaster after the next.
If the dialogue and story setup weren't enough of a source of hilarity, the set behind the actors certainly brought the laughs. Everything from paintings on the walls to the walls themselves came apart and crashed to the floor.
Technical Theatre Design teacher Doug Blackall, and his students, built the set.
Here are some of the reviews shared by Show Director Kim Day:
"AMAZING. I am no stranger to theater, and I am not exaggerating when I say this show ranks as one of funniest, well timed, and produced shows I have seen. The comedic timing was crazy, especially for these students and the amount of time they had to rehearse. The set design was clever and was a member of the play. Simply brilliant."
“My sister and I started laughing immediately and barely stopped through the whole thing. Those kids did a great job. We LOVED IT!"
Day also added some praise to the cast and crew:
"This year's cast is hilarious, diligent, and committed, Despite their busy schedules, they were determined to make this
show work and come to fruition. I am quite thankful for dedication, talents, and laughter."
The Performing Arts team will next put together a musical performance of Mary Poppins in the Spring.
