ARTISTIC DIRECTOR'S NOTES - James O'Leary
Two announcements about our plans for October:
1. We have decided to postpone our return to live theater for a little while longer. Our One Night Stand Jukebox show will take place in February rather than this October.
2. In the meantime, we will be presenting another audio online mini-show: One Night Stand’s Haunted Halloween. We are looking for plays, stories, poems, memories and more around the theme of Halloween and horror: comedic or dramatic, frightening or disturbing, starring ghosts, goblins, witches, vampires, monsters or anything that goes bump in the night. The deadline is September 27, and you can send submissions to tickets@OneNightStandTheater.org.
Our new audio “mini-show” is up on our website! Back to School features short plays and stories about students and education:
Master the complexities of kindergarten projects in “For a Loop” by Donna Hoke.
Experience the world’s toughest penmanship lesson in “Sister Michael Mary” by Dave Ufford.
Take part in a timeless lunchroom ritual in “The Bully” by Jeff O’Leary.
Discover a vexing life lesson through a grade-school Christmas play in “The Good Ones” by J. Jackson.
Get revenge on the prom king and queen in “Punch Bowl” by David-Matthew Barnes.
Graduate from high school and into the great outdoors in “The Lowering Wilderness” by Jon Jory.
The show is split into three parts so you can listen at your leisure. It features One Night Stand actors Erin Bell, Linda Swanson Brown, Randy Diamon, Joi Hiatt, Jack McCarthy, Brooke Olson, Maria Ortiz, Kytriena Payseno, Jillian Price, Theodore Story, Dave Ufford and Guy Williams. Let our headmaster, Evelyn Uppington-Smythe, take you on a tour of One Night Stand Academy to encounter scary teachers, lunchroom hijinks and prom pranks! It’s free, but a mini-donation for our mini-show to help with the costs of this “stay at home” production is appreciated!
