The 2020 casts and crews for the One Acts

Evan Cleghorn and Mia Cliff

This year’s student directed ‘One Act” plays included a portrayal of Our Place by Terry Gabbard, The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet by Peter Bloedel, and Face First by Victoria Smith and Kyra Reilly. Sophia Torres and Nadia Diaz-Fossen chose and directed Our Place. Chloe Cardozo selected and directed The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet, and Victoria Smith and Kyra Reilly wrote and directed Face First.

Part of the allure of joining the crew was getting to know new people. 

“I bonded with people I didn’t think I would have talked to before, even getting close with people in different plays,” said sophomore Gabriel Garcia, who played Thing 2 in The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet.

I was able to bring to life… and to death… a character I could love and relate to. I was taught the importance of love and I was able to bond with so many new people and see them grow as people. I enjoyed every single day of it and am so grateful to have been a part of this experience,” said Laura Fajardo, who portrayed the character of Sydney in Our Place.

“I had a lot of fun! I learned so much about being myself and being outgoing,” said junior Bria Lockard, who portrayed Carri in Face First.

The next and last Doherty theatre production is in the month of April. Auditions are being held January 30th and 31st. The play is an adaptation of Reginald Rose’s 12 Angry Men. However, rather than being a cast completely derived of males, Mr. Reed is combining 12 Angry Men and 12 Angry Women into 12 Angry Jurors. In this play, the 12 jurors attempt to come to a unanimous decision in a murder case that would lead to a teen being executed. Despite 11 jurors agreeing on the guilty verdict, one juror attempts to convince the rest that the teen is innocent. If you are not planning on auditioning or working in the crew, come see the drama on April 9th, 10th, and 11th.
