MS One-Acts: "Colorful Creatures"

Reserve your tickets now for "Colorful Creatures: Four Wacky One-Acts About Animals and Art.

The box office is now open for reservations. These one-acts, featuring middle school actors from Holton and Landon will be performed at 7:00 p.m. on May 6 and  7 in the Diana Coulton Beebe Black Box Theater.  

What do crayons feel when they are pulled from a crayon box? What fate awaits insects trapped in a jar on a summer’s evening? These existential questions take center stage in “The Big Picture” and “In the Jar” by Mark Harvey Levine and directed by Trevor Fanning. 

Farm animals step in as “mean girls” in Emily Hageman’s “One Seriously Ugly Duckling” which interrogates the question of who gets to tell our story and what we can do to reclaim the narrative. Mark Robinson directs this piece. 

The final play “The Coloring Book” depicts the tensions that arise for a group of two-dimensional animals who find themselves colored by children with very different artistic approaches. Bradley Walton’s play, directed by Elizabeth Zitelli, features a society of animals who become stratified by the way they’re drawn.

Current Covid precautions:  All performers and theater technicians are fully vaccinated. We recommend that audience members remain masked throughout the performance.
