The Westerville North High School Theatre Department is proud to present this year’s scholarship show, Senior Directed One-Acts. The plays will take place in the school auditorium at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, December 14, and Saturday, December 15. North is located at 950 County Line Road. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5 each with proceeds benefiting the theatre scholarship program. With more than 16 years of theater experience combined, Samantha Gaston, Joelle Marshall and Matt Lascheid are going behind the scenes to direct three hilarious one-act plays.
  • Polar Twilight by Hilary DePiano, directed by Samantha Gaston. When three candidates are called to interview for a public relations position at the North Pole, they expect to find a dream job gift-wrapped for them. But all that changes once they meet Big Red himself. Suddenly, everything they thought they knew about him is proven terrifyingly wrong. Can they help Santa maintain his jolly public image, or could this be the end of Christmas as we know it?
  • Rejection! or, Will Date For Food by Ian McWethy, directed by Joelle Marshall. After their parents threaten to stop feeding them if they don't go to prom, two teens are forced to ask out as many people as possible until they each find a date. But as they scout their respective schools, hilarity and insanity ensue.
  • Drugs Are Bad by Jonathan Rand, directed by Matt Lascheid. Brad comes home from school one day to find his parents waiting for him, deeply concerned. They have found a secret that Brad stashed away in his underwear drawer: an algebra book. That's right – Brad has been studying behind their backs, instead of following his parents' strict insistence on sex, drugs, and rock and roll. What unfolds is a parody of all those insufferable after-school specials that made us who we are today.
