A joint effort between the Wilbur Wright Theatre Company and the Munster Theatre company will result in their contest-bound one-acts being presented on November 7-9.
Wilbur Wright Theatre Company will present the one-act drama Rising, about a group of students trapped alone in their school during Hurricane Harvey in 2017. The Munster Theatre Company will present the drama Discovering Rogue, about a young woman named Rogue who struggles to live up to the multitude of expectations set before by those in her life.
Both shows will be entered into the Indiana Thespians Regional Play Competition later this semester. Wilbur Wright competes in Hobart on November 23, and Munster High School on December 7 at Maconaquah High School. If they finish in the top two at their respective Regional, they advance to perform and compete at the state conference in January. Last year MTC advanced to State for the first time with their show The Refugee Women. It is the second year of play competition for Wilbur Wright, and the third for MTC. Peggy Matanic heads up the Wilbur Wright show, and Ray Palasz leads the high school troupe.
Performances will be held at 7 PM on November 5, 6, and 7 and 2 PM on November 8. Tickets are $6 in advance at https://munaud.booktix.com. At the door tickets will be $8 for adults and MHS students, $6 for all other students and senior citizens, and free for School Town of Munster Employees, the military, and their families.
