About One Act Festival

Our student playwrights have written some surreal, moving and hilarious scripts for our 2024 One Act Festival, and our student cast and crew members are standing by to bring them to life on the stage.

The only thing missing is you!

  • Lucia Hess directs Hunter Miyan's “Cinderemma," a twist on the classic fairytale with an infusion of pop culture.
  • Josiah Germer directs a cerebral journey through time, space, and the family dinner table in Kayla Cody’s “Impossible.”
  • Eska Garrison directs Kayla Cody’s sweet, silly and somewhat Shakespearean “A Midsummer’s Doughnut.”
  • Graham Esmon directs Xavier Hursty’s “A Penguin Story,” a surreal, sinister, slapstick bedtime tale.
  • Niya Hromada directs Dashiell Gray's “Strong Convictions," an intimate portrait of a young poet exploring the meaning of her own work in a searing conversation with a close friend.
