October 7: We had a great time with “Sci-Fi 2: Aliens Among Us!” last Sunday night. The plays and stories were great, and our actors were wonderful. A special thank you to Jeff Miller, Randy Diamon, and Erin Bell for providing their “sci-fi voices” throughout the evening – a Cylon from Battlestar Galactica, Captain Kirk from Star Trek, and a Tusken Raider from Star Wars. Plus, I was able to show the audience my inner space alien, all too briefly…

Our next One Night Stand is our first Christmas show! It’s called “’Twas the One Night Stand Before Christmas,” and it will be an evening of holiday cheer featuring stories and plays (and music, maybe). If you have a short play, story, or poem that fits the evening (Dec. 14), contact us at tickets@OneNightStandTheater.org and we’ll send you more info! (Deadline is November 3.)

September 25: We are now in rehearsals for “Aliens Among Us!” with our talented cast: Suzanna Wellens, Jeff Miller, Sydney Kenney, Cassie Kelso, Kurt Keilbach, Adrian Hart, Randy Diamon, Dave Brandl, and Erin Bell. Our directors are Cindy Hall, Kristin Honiotes, Tami Canaday, and yours truly. “What’s my alien’s motivation?” is a question heard in rehearsal, along with, “How can I hold this script with my tentacles?” We are discovering that the human characters in our plays can be just as strange as their visitors from beyond the stars. We’re looking forward to the Oct. 5 performance!

August 11: We have selected our play and stories for “Sci-Fi Theater 2: Aliens Among Us”! They are “Time Slot” by Kay Poiro (1950s aliens), “Suckpuppies” by Wayne Faust (parasitic aliens), “Plants” by J. Starling (wooden aliens), “Sanctuary” by Simon Fill (hopeful aliens), “Professors TweedleDee and TweedleDum Contemplate the Likelihood of Intelligent Life” by Bill Thompson (alien-like academics), “That Foggy Night” by Mark Ogle (“repeat” alien from June 2013), and “The Other Side of the Stars” by Wyllis Cooper (1940s radio aliens). Some of these space creatures are nice, and some are downright murderous. We will be finding directors and actors in the next month for our Oct. 5 performance. More details later!
