Laugh away holiday stress at FHS one-act plays December 15, 2011

NEED A BREAK from the stress of preparing for the holidays?

Well, Faribault area residents, I’d recommend taking in Faribault High School’s student-directed one-act plays Friday or Saturday night.

For only $3 and about an hour of your time, you can escape your holiday busyness, relax and laugh. That’s a dollar for each benefit you reap. A bargain, I’d say.

And you will laugh, or maybe snort like the girl sitting behind me, at the humor in “Bad Auditions By Bad Actors,” directed by FHS student Lorelei Tinaglia, and “It’s Not You, It’s Me,” directed by Jeremiah Kuehne.

The content of the first play is self-explanatory by the title. The second play is about relationships.

These teens can entertain. They’re confident, poised, talented and funny. But, more importantly, they’re having fun. You can see that.

Eke out an hour of your time to support these theater students who will gift you with laughter.

Be there. Black Box Theatre. At 7 p.m. Friday or Saturday. Faribault High School.

  1. I love that you are supporting the high school thespians! My mother has been directing the Catholic elementary school musical/pageant for years- all my younger siblings have starred and I have missed it. Now Clare is in high school, and I will finally see it this year. I’m still excited. -kate

      I’ve tried to attend at least one performance a year. The talent of these students always impresses me. And knowing several of the actors/actresses makes it even more fun for me. Just this year my 17-year-old tried out for a play and got a part. He also has a role in an upcoming Children’s Theatre performance.

      Arts students, in my opinion, aren’t supported nearly as much as they should be. There were lots of empty chairs last night in the Black Box Theatre.

    If I were in Minnesota, I’d definitely come to the show. I love supporting the arts at all levels, and it sounds like a lot of fun.
