A Festival of Plays

Bayport-Blue Point High School talented student-actors presented the Drama Club’s ninth annual One Act Play Festival this spring in the auditorium.

During the event, students performed three plays, including one written by junior Lena Diaz. Lena wrote, cast and directed her first production, “And the One Who Did It Is…Wait Till the End!” After the performance Lena had a question and answer session with audience members about her process and intentions.

The other shows featured during the event included “Bad Auditions by Bad Actors” and “The Internet is Distract---Oh Look, a Kitten!,” both by published playwright Ian McWethy.

This year’s actors included seniors Justin Martinez and Darren Plante, juniors Devin Bressler, Lena Diaz, Sean Hickey and Helen Johannesman, sophomores Nezaket Arabaci and Shannon Conrad, and freshmen Gia Bono, Elizabeth Johannesman and Lauren Rodriguez. Crew members who supported the cast were Anna Kearns, Sarah Koerner, Sidney Okray and Madeline Silecchia. Teacher advisors are Ms. Eberhard and Ms. Pearce. Former student Jamie Oswald is the stage manager.
