Hill Street Theater of DeLand High School is preparing for the start of the 2021/22 theater season! We’re live again and couldn’t be more excited! This year’s fall show consists of three adorable one-act acts that we hope will make you laugh, cry and think.
Our first one-act play is The elf on the shelf has to die by Don Zolidis. On this comedic foray into Christmas, everyone wonders if Santa Claus really has spies to help him figure out who is naughty and nice.
Mook and Sammy are siblings who embark on a fast-paced journey that takes them to their local Walmart in search of their Christmas fate. Are you getting your Xbox? Or are they permanently on the naughty Santas list? Find out what they’re getting for Christmas this year! This piece is not for young people, sMall kids.
Edgar, by John Haman, is a warm, loving, romantic ghost story. Ms. Foster, the new theater teacher, discovers a plaque in honor of a student named “Edgar” who died almost 35 years ago when the school opened.
Little information is available about the young man, which leaves anyone in the theater class guessing who he was, especially Ms. Foster. We meet their students Emma and Garrett, who find they have a lot more in common than they ever expected.
Edgar is full of humor and beautiful choreography by the International Baccalaureate Theater Candidate and the Hill Street Theater President Kendall Morreale, and dazzling lighting and technology from ours Theater Tech Club. To see this show you will need a handkerchief at the end.
Our last one-act play AsAssembly, by Barry Weber, takes us through a day in the life of a high school congregation. You don’t have to be a teacher, administrator, or student to experience the fast-paced comedy behind this absurd piece of madness – but it might help!
Assembly makes fun of fundraising, technology, discipline, and the ever-changing needs of a modern high school. It’s about as silly as it is imaginative; however, it is also a serious, ominous picture of the reality and nature of public education today.
Each of these pieces is filled with a mix of veterans of our stage and newbies. In these three plays we have more than 30 thespians and new members of the Hill Street Theater. We also have a fantastic Theater Tech Club that is responsible for all of our wonderful tech.
These one-act plays will be from Wednesday to Friday, 20.-22. October, at 7:00 p.m. in the DeLand High School Auditorium.
Tickets are $ 5 for students and $ 10 for adults and are available at the box office each evening.
We hope you will support these talented and great students! Please remember to bring your masks with you. Social distancing seating is available.
If you have any questions or concerns, call 386-822-6909, ext. 23455.
See you in the theater!
