TABC Theater Department Performs Two One-Act Plays

Last Thursday night, the TABC Theater Department, in partnership with Envision Theater, produced a night of one-act plays directed by Rebecca Lopkin. “The Infamous Soothing System of Professor Maillard,” adapted from an Edgar Allan Poe story, and “Kaleidoscope” by Ray Bradbury were performed by a cast of ninth through 12th graders, many making their stage debuts. The first play depicts a traveler happening upon an insane asylum where things are not as they appear. The second takes place in a spaceship bound for deep space that explodes mid-flight. The astronauts are thrown from the cockpit and hurled miles apart from one another. While they can only communicate through their radio coms, they use their last moments before their oxygen runs out to share their thoughts about life. The day after the production’s debut to a sold-out audience, the talented student-actors put on an encore performance for the entire school.
