One-Act Play “Reeling” at Sheyenne High School Mainstage
April 1, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$5
One-Act Play: REELING—April 1 at Sheyenne HS Mainstage
Join Sheyenne Theatre April 1st at 7:30pm for an evening showcasing our school’s entries to the North Dakota Class A One-Act Play competition. Performances include individual event selections in solo musical theatre, duet musical theatre, group musical theatre, monologue, and duo acting, as well as Sheyenne’s one-act play entry: REELING. All tickets will be $5, general admission available at the door.
REELING follows plucky protagonist, Little Fellow, as he heads to the big city to make something of himself, and winds up in a motion picture studio where he is mistaken for the big-shot director. Comic mayhem ensues with an impossibly happy ending, as our hero and his girl literally escape the chaos into the silver screen.
Told without a single spoken word, REELING is a highly theatrical homage to the silent movie era (complete with subtitles, live sound effects, and film underscoring) celebrating the tenacity of the human spirit and the enduring power of art.
Sheyenne’s one-act and individual events will also perform April 3rd and 4th at Lake Region State College in Devils Lake as part of the Class A One-Act State Play competition. Sheyenne was the 2016 One-Act Play champion.
