Student playwrights, directors, and actors presented their original one-act productions during the fifth annual Framed-In Theater Festival, April 19 and 20, in the Norris Ely Orchard Theater.
Each performance was required to meet the Framed-In parameters and focus either literally or figuratively on the festival theme of "globalization," which is also the school theme this year.
According to the guidelines, each play was approximately 10 minutes in length and incorporated a collective prop or set piece, and all action took place within the theatrical frame set on stage. Additionally, each play began with the line, "That is a baseless superstition," and ended with, "Where do I even start?"
Theater teacher David McCamish says Framed-In provides a structure for students to focus their efforts while still allowing for creativity and expression.
