PHS one act cast performs in district competition

One Act to present state-bound show

Posted November 14, 2016

Plymouth High School's One Act cast once again has advanced to state competition, this year with "The Worlds of Mark Twain."

The public is invited to watch a free performance of "The Worlds of Mark Twain" at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17 in the school auditorium, 125 Highland Ave.

PHS then will participate in the state one-act competition hosted by UW-Stevens Point as part of the Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival held Nov. 17 to 19. The Panthers are scheduled to perform at 3:45 p.m. Nov. 18 in the Michelson Theater.

The play features excerpts of Twain's works: the "Royal Nonesuch" from The Adventures of Huckleberry; an inside look at Adam and Eve's thoughts from the short stories "Extracts from Adam's Diary" and "Eve's Diary"; the swindling Jim Smiley and the rambling Simon Wheeler from "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County"; and a little-known kingdom from "Legend of Sagenfeld."

One-act plays must be completed under 40 minutes, including set-up and take down of sets. In order to advance to the state competition, PHS performed well at district competition held Oct. 21 at Oshkosh West High School and at sectionals held Nov. 5 at Neenah High School.
