After One Act auditions, student actors, stage managers and directors begin the process of preparing seven different plays, all written by students.

The show date is May 7, in the Black Box Theater and will cost $5 for students and $7 for adults.

This semester 21 students auditioned.

Claire McCarthy, freshman, was one of the people who auditioned. This was McCarthy’s first time auditioning for one acts, but she has been in other productions, including “A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream” at Webster Groves High School, “Mary Poppins” at Ignite Theater and “A Christmas Story” at Shooting Star Productions.

“I really like to act and to perform for a lot of people,” McCarthy said.

On the other side of the audition process is senior Katrine Wright, who with Victor Vargas-Zanabria wrote and will direct “Adios Mi Amigo.”

Wright came up with the idea and Vargas-Zanabria helped. The inspiration for their story came from Westerns. Wright always wanted to write something about that. McCarthy was one of the students that they picked to be in their One Act.

“I’m a little nervous, but I’m pretty proud of what I wrote, and I hope people like it,” Wright said.
Some of the authors and directors are senior Aiden Kurtz, senior Sean Mullins, freshman Zoie Sellers, senior Rahman Ali, senior Hank Geers, freshman Sisi DeSuza and others.
