“Don’t PANIC!”

The high school theatre program proudly announces the Winter Student One-Act play series, a mash-up of five short plays by David Ives, entitled All in the Timing. The evening of comedy also includes an original short play by high school theatre instructor Mr. Doering entitled Perfect.

The idea for the Winter One-Act plays began when four theatre students, Luke Miller, Harper Lagares, Iris Kim and Angela Wang, voiced an interested in directing their own shows. The Theatre quintet, officers of the International Thespian Society, poured through a fountain of options, eventually opting for David Ives’ masterpiece of comedic romp-ery. Open auditions for the high school student body quickly resulted in a talented cast eager to show their stuff to audiences thirsty for comedy with a bite. Winner of the John Gassner Playwriting Award, Ives’ All in the Timing is a critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combining wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. Indeed, Mr. Ives’ mash-up of clever, cynical (and somewhat sinister) humor has resulted in his short canon of comedies to be one of the most widely produced plays in the world of high school theatre.
