Six northeast Nebraska high schools will participate in a one-act play festival at Morningside College from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, in Klinger-Neal Theatre, 3700 Peters Ave.
This event is free and open to the public.
“Morningside hosts this event so that the schools in the northeast section of Nebraska will have a chance to perform their one-acts in front of local professionals who will work with each group to help get them ready to compete in the state competition” said Randy Peters, the artistic director for the Betty Ling Tsang Fine Arts Series at Morningside College.
High schools attending the festival are Humphrey, Lyons-Decatur, South Sioux City, Wayne, Winnebago and Wynot. Each school will have one hour to set the stage and perform its one-act play, which can range from a comedy to a musical to a drama.
Trophies will be awarded at the end of the day. Morningside College will name a best actor, best actress, best supporting actor and best supporting actress for each play, and those students will receive a scholarship to Morningside.
