An Evening of One-Acts Presented April 5-8

BOONE — For those with opposing tastes in theatre, the Appalachian State University Department of Theatre and Dance will present comedy and suspense during “An Evening of One Acts” April 5-8.

The performances feature two student-directed, one-act plays beginning at 8 p.m. in the Greer Arena Theatre located on campus.

Tickets are $3.

For reservations or further information, call the Valborg Theatre box office at (828) 262-3063, weekdays from 2-5 p.m.

The evening’s first show is “The Feistiest Woman” adapted by Greyson Dunn from Fred Chappell’s book “Farewell, I’m Bound to Leave You.”

Rumor says Ginger Summerell is getting married again, which is a little surprising since she is the type for whom marriage doesn’t stick. Joe Robert and his wife, Cora, recount memories of the feistiest woman around.

Greyson Dunn directs “The Feistiest Woman.” The cast includes Sharon Pinney, Daniel Graybeal, Josh Price, Jessica Hunt and Barrett Gregory.

Trisha Harmon is the stage manager.

Next, society’s dark side is exposed on a dimly lit side street in Manhattan. “The Other Five Percent” by Bryan Goluboff is the story of Amy, a senior in high school, who is lost Halloween night on New York’s eerie streets.

Her adventurous nature leads her into a complicated situation controlled by fate.

Her life falls into the hands of two men who have ideas of how society defines individuals and their means of survival.

Torn between the safety of a New York police officer and a man in a mask, Amy soon finds herself at the mercy of “The Other Five Percent.”

Danielle Butson directs “The Other Five Percent” with the cast of Brenda Richard, Jacob McCraw and Chris Evans.

Andrea Gilkey serves as the stage manager.

The technical positions of “An Evening of One Acts” are filled by Caryn Crye as light board operator, Mandy Harris as sound board operator and Jennifer Allman as production stage manager.
