One-act plays tell a story just like a regular play, but they take less time! That’s why the PHS Drama Department can offer five plays in the same evening as they present 'A Night of One Acts' on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25.

The performances will take place starting at 7 p.m. in the Drama Room (A-7) on the PHS campus. Ticket prices are $3 for adults and $1 for students/children.

The first play, 'Narcissus,' is written by PHS alumni Hunter Bock, and features the main character dealing with the fallout from becoming the most handsome man on earth (directed by PHS senior Brenden Bock).

Next up is Charles Beaumont and Jetty Sohl’s 'Living Doll,' an adaptation of an episode from the originalTwilight Zone TV series and features a children’s doll which takes on a life of its own (directed by PHS senior Cameron Dickson).

The third play of the evening is 'Christmas in July,' an original piece written and directed by PHS senior Elijah Perez, and deals with a rather unusual pair of hosts on a home shopping channel.

'Fear of the Press' is another original piece by a PHS student, senior Roberto Ramos, who also directs; the setting is the Old West, and the citizens of a small dusty town are under the heel of a sheriff with a secret.

Finally, 'Variations on the Death of Trotsky' by David Ives reveals that death is not always permanent (directed by Craig Caven, PHS Drama instructor).

Five shows, including comedies and dramas, and all in a single evening! Join us for our last show of the year!

Tickets are available at the door starting at 6:30 p.m. For more information,call (559)782-7279.
