FSCC Theatre One-Acts

April 18, 2019

Before dropping the final curtain on the school year, Fort Scott Community College presents “Loose Ends,” a night of five student- and guest-directed one-act plays (and two monologues) designed to make the audience laugh, cry, think, curse or all of the above.

There is no admission charge for the event, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. May 2-3 in the Danny and Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center.

“This gives us one last opportunity to showcase our student performers, technicians and directors,” said Allen Twitchell, FSCC theater instructor. “It puts a nice bow on our season.”

The plays, in tentative order of performance, are:

“Easy Credit,” written by Samuel M. Post and directed by Clayton Whitson, FSCC speech instructor. The cast includes Wendy Monahan, a junior at Fort Scott High School; Massiel Ordonez, freshman from Panama City, Panama; and Amy Walker, sophomore from Fort Scott. “Piece of Your Heart,” written and directed by Katelynn Coe, sophomore from LaCygne. The cast features Jasper Dunn, sophomore from Whitehall, Wis.; Kaitlyn Hanks, freshman from Redfield; Meaghan Hay, freshman from Fort Scott; and Ordonez. “Hands of Fate,” written by D.M. Larson and directed by Mickey Donahue, sophomore from Fort Scott. The cast includes Aiden Ballinger, freshman from Pleasanton; Dunn; Monahan; and Marcus Robinson, freshman from Paola. “Last Day of Camp,” written by Jeffrey Sweet and directed by Twitchell. The cast features Ka’Si Gates, sophomore from Bronson; Hanks; and Robinson. “Teacher Boot Camp,” written by Adam Sharp and directed by Gates. The cast includes Ballinger; Coe; Hay; and Walker.

In addition to the short plays, Royalty Mercer, a freshman from Lithonia, Ga., will perform two monologues.

Assisting with the technical aspects of the production is Michael Woodward, a freshman from Fulton.

Some plays contain mild profanity and mature themes.
