Manchester College’s fall one-acts

cover job situations

and reflections by Trotsky


     The 2005 production of the Manchester College New Student One Acts is really three plays, each with separate student director, for a three-night run Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 17-19. The curtain rises at 8 p.m. each night in Wampler Auditorium. Admission is $1 or a canned good for the local food pantry.  The plays are produced each fall by the college’s chapter of the national theatre organization Alpha Psi Omega.

      Going Down is co-directed by seniors Rachel McFadden of North Manchester and Steven Grubb of Elkhart. The actors are first-year students Cameron Johnson of Fort Wayne and Kacie Gauby. In the play, a newly appointed female CEO and a chauvinist male employee who is unaware the woman is a top officer in the company, talk while waiting for the elevator.

     The second one-act, Death of Trotsky, is co-directed by siblings from Otterbein, junior Will Patch and sophomore Amanda Patch. The actors are first-year students Tedra Tague of New Market and Jeff Combs of Wabash. In this series of short skits, Trotsky reads about his own death in an encyclopedia.

     The third one-act is The DMV, directed by senior Brad Vah of Chesterton. The actors are first-year students Allyson Gonzales of Hammond and Jason Adams of Bluffton. The DMV is about an applicant participating in a job interview that is rather “out of the ordinary.” This one-act will not be performed Saturday night.
