Freshman Plays To Be Presented at Wheeling Park High School

Andrew Gadd and Olivia Kuntz

WHEELING — Wheeling Park High School’s Introduction to Speech and Theater classes will present two one-act plays at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 1, in the Phyllis A. Beneke Theater.

The plays, “It’s Not You, It’s Me” and “10 Ways to Survive the End of the World,” both by Don Zolidis, will provide an evening of fun entertainment for audiences of all ages.

“It’s Not You, It’s Me,” explores the painful art of breaking-up through comedic, awkwardly realistic characters, this series of wildly hilarious scenes are sure to make you feel relieved not to be the receiving end of those five fatal relationship words. Whether your boyfriend is a Canadian secret agent or monk in training, or your girlfriend is a psychic or pathological liar, one thing is for sure: they are about to dump you.

In “10 Ways to Survive the End of the World,” it feels like the end of the world could happen any minute. But are the machines or the apes going to be the first to rise up against us? Are we looking at a killer asteroid or a killer virus here? Better get ready for them all! Any way the end times arrive, you just might have a shot at survival with this hilarious new how-to guide.

Mrs. Isabella Droginske directs the plays and also teaches the Introduction to Speech and Theater classes.

A tradition in the Fine and Performing Arts Department, the “freshman plays,” as they are known, allow incoming freshmen the opportunity to develop their acting skills. Freshmen plays are presented once each semester.

For the freshman plays, tickets may be purchased on the afternoon of the performance.

The next performance for the theater department, “The Addams Family,” is scheduled for May 1-3 in the J.B. Chambers Performing Arts Center. Tickets will go on sale in April.
