Seabury Hall Performing Arts ends its season with our 24th annual Side Shows– a wild array of short plays.
In this year’s slate of eight plays, three are student-written: In Zachary Kubo’s Paradise Lost a couple goes on a journey. Jessica Nelson’s A Tropical Calling sees a conventional husband break free. In Gabi Kanoa’s The Ice King, a repressed actor goes for broke.
As always, festival directors Sally Sefton and Todd Van Amburgh are grateful for the faculty, friends, and students who volunteer their time to work with the two dozen student actors.This year, adult directors Vinnie Linares, Scott Morrison, Sara Patton, Tash Summit, and Scott Winham are joined by student director Zachary Kubo.
“The one-act festival has proven to be an ideal experience for students and audiences!” says Van Amburgh.
“The show is fast and fun – a rollercoaster ride for the audience. Students get lead parts and -- because the plays are all about 10 minutes – don’t have the taxing rehearsal schedule they get for longer shows. As teachers, we get to include more students (over two dozen in the whole festival). Veterans end their high-school careers with this show while others are discovered here. Students get to work with other directors and directors get to experiment. The One-Act festival is both great education and great fun!”
