Auditions for the One Act plays were held Aug. 16 and 17, with callbacks on Aug. 18. Performances will be Oct. 13 and 14. The county  competition will be held at White Water High School on Oct. 22. McIntosh students will be performing “The Women of Lockerbie” and Check Please.” 

“The Women of Lockerbie” is a play about an American husband and wife who lost their son in the terrorist bombing of Pam Am flight 103, which exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland. The play depicts the impact the crash left on the lives of Lockerbie citizens.

The second One Act play, “Check Please,” is about a series of blind dates. Throughout the course of the play, the audience is introduced to a kleptomaniac and a mime among other strange characters.

Freshman Lydia Campbell said, “Linda (my character) has no shame in showing all of her sides on the first date. She switches from personality to personality during the scene. Her demeanor is ever changing, making the role she plays, an interesting character to follow.”
