The One Act Play Team will be presenting “Mother Knows Best”, a comedy featuring a few familiar nursery rhyme characters, by Geff Moyer this season. Heuer Publishing provides the following synopsis of the play:
“This play presents Mother Goose characters in a whole new light. Little Miss Muffet wants something besides curds and whey to eat, Jack is suffering from a multiple personality disorder, Georgie Porgie won't stop stealing kisses, Mary’s being very contrary, Tom the Piper’s son shows up with his stolen pig, and everyone else is peeved about something. During a mandatory therapy session, counseled by the Good Fairy, it is discovered that the lyrical land of enchantment is getting a better offer from a big competitor, and they are being swayed.”
What will the Good Fairy do to keep the disgruntled characters from jumping ship? The Exeter-Milligan One-Act team invites patrons to find out by attending one of their performances.
The first presentation of the play will be at the One Act Play Dessert Luncheon on Sunday, November 7th. This event will be co-hosted with the Exeter-Milligan FCCLA. “The dessert luncheon will give the actors an opportunity to perform in front of a live audience before they take the play to competition,” stated Director Jami Ellis, “and it will be a lot of fun for everyone involved—especially with the fantastic deserts provided by the FCCLA. Senior actress, Lindsey Klemm, is very excited about the upcoming performances of the play and adds, “We should have a good play this year because we have a good mix of experienced actors and new talent.”
After the luncheon, the one-act team will compete on November 17, 2010 at the CRC Tournament and at the District Competition on November 29th and 30th.
