Seabury Hall Performing Arts ends its season with our 25th annual Side Shows – a wild array of short, 10-minute plays.  

In this year’s shorter program, all four plays are written by current Seabury seniors!

Lily McLeod’s Pausing Life hits the pause button during the SAT. Maya Miller’s Perfect Life? traps a pair of friends in an elevator. Julia Jansen’s Finding Peace takes a skateboarder on a journey of discovery. Max McKuin’s The Gun Show creates a world where weightlifting is illegal. 

As always, festival director Todd Van Amburgh is grateful for the faculty, alumni, and friends who volunteer their time to work with our student actors. This year, faculty directors Marsha Kelly and Todd Van Amburgh are joined by alumnus Zeb Mehring ‘15 and long time one-act director Vinnie Linares.  

“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. Veterans end their high-school careers with this show while others are discovered here. 

“Students get to write, direct, act … the One-Act festival is great education and great fun!”
