Ithaca High School Hosts Three One Act Plays


Drama students from Ithaca High School (IHS) are pleased to present three one act plays this weekend in the Black Box Theatre of the High School Performing Arts Center. The three plays, each directed by an IHS student, will be performed back to back on Friday, December 9 at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and on Saturday, December 10 at 7:30 p.m. 
 
Each year IHS students have the opportunity to choose and direct a play under the guidance of Lorraine Tino. The students experience the whole process from auditions to final production. This year, seniors Crystal Casselberry and Sebastian Fullerton and junior Sarah Robertson have undertaken this adventure.
 
“Mirror, Mirror,” a parody on the fairy tale "Snow White," is directed by Casselberry. Fullerton chose “The Pleasures of Detachment,” a nihilist play about the human condition. The ghosts of the Salem witch trials make their appearance in “Gallow’s Hill,” directed by Robertson.
 
The community is invited to come and see the work of our talented youth, including cast, crew, and directors. The Black Box Theater is located next to Kulp Auditorium in the IHS Performing Arts Center. Donations will be accepted at the door.
