One Act Play: Fourteen Lines

cast & crew

Cast & Crew

14 lines

 

MHS seniors, Lily Barnes and Steph Michel are the directors for this year's METG one act play.  The show is called FOURTEEN LINES by Alan Haehnel.  Carly (played by Maria Papoulidis) and her high school friends are in danger of failing senior English if they do not do well on their final exam (sound familiar!). Carly tries desperately to motivate each student to overcome his/her personal issues so that he/she will pass the class and graduate on time. 

Mansfield High School's cast and crew of FOURTEEN LINES competed in the preliminary round of the Massachusetts High School Drama Festival on Saturday,
February 29th at Attleboro High School. They were one of three acts chosen to go to the next round. Website

FOURTEEN LINES, directed by MHS seniors Lily Barnes and Stephanie Michel,  will advance to the semifinal round on March 14th at Sharon High School.

Six forty minute plays will be performed at the semi final round starting at 9 am, two of those shows will advance to the State Finals in late March.
Tickets will be available at the door throughout the day for $15.
Mansfield is scheduled to perform at 2:30 pm.

Out of the 112 one-act plays that were performed throughout the state this past Saturday,
fourteen of those will be selected as State Finalists, of which three will be named winners.
Two schools chosen from the State Finalists will go on to represent Massachusetts in the New England Drama Festival.

**I will hold an audition on Fri 2/28 at 2pm for Grimsby & the Pilot. Guys, let me know if you are interested in auditioning for those roles. It will be a quick audition!

**I am pretty sure we will be performing the show May 15-17 and moving the tech week rehearsals to May 8-14. I am awaiting approval from the licensing company. I’ll let you know for sure - ASAP!  Thanks!!!! You all were amazing at the auditions.  We have a ton of talent at MHS!! See you at 3pm on Feb 24th in the MHS auditorium for our first rehearsal.


 

Rehearsal Expectations

1. Arrive to rehearsal at least five minutes before the rehearsal is scheduled to begin. 

2. Bring your music and/or script and a pencil to every rehearsal. Do not chew gum. 

3. Wear appropriate shoes like sneakers or dance shoes – no flip flops or slides. 

4. Wear appropriate clothes for dancing like sweat pants or shorts (when the weather heats up). 

5. Memorize each song and the blocking and/or dance as soon as possible.  Once we learn the music to a song, you should memorize the lyrics before Kristen teaches the dance.  Also, once Kristen teaches you any choreography, you need to practice it a lot before the next rehearsal. 

6. Bring only water to rehearsal.  If you need to eat, eat only in the lobby during breaks and clean up after yourself. 

7. When we rehearse in the MHS or QMS auditoriums, MHS choir room, at JJ, or in Ms. Pepicelli’s room at QMS, do not touch the instruments or equipment and be sure to return chairs/tables/Chromebooks to their original position in the room. 

8. Be quiet at rehearsal.  If you are waiting to rehearse, you must sit quietly until it is your turn to practice.  When you are working with Mrs. Holster, Mrs. Kelley, Kristen, or me it is important that you listen when we give you directions and not talk while we are talking.  We need your cooperation!!! 

9. You are allowed two excused absences from rehearsal.  In order for an absence to be considered “excused”, you need to include it on your audition form & remind me  (via email) as we get closer to the date.  If something unexpected comes up and you have not used your two excused absences, notify me ASAP and I will let you know if it is considered “excused”. See the detailed attendance policy form.  Students should personally notify me (not parents) via email. 

My address is; Sheila.Newton@mansfieldschools.com​.  If you do not show up for rehearsal and I do not know about your conflict, it will not be considered “excused” and you may be cut from the number or even from the show.  ​ If you are sick and absent from school, please email me from home that day to let me know that you are unable to attend rehearsal. ​ ​ In this case, I will excuse you from rehearsal.  You are not allowed to miss any of the tech rehearsals after April vacation week. 

10. Allow notifications on The Little Mermaid Google Classroom so you are sure to see any announcements.  

11. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!!  We want to put on the best show possible and can only do that if you commit to it wholeheartedly!
