Event Details


Date: January 18 - January 20, 2012

Times: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Mary Hart Acting Studio

Augustana College Theatrical Society (ACTS), a student organization dedicated to the social and artistic aspects of theatre, presents three student productions for the 2011-2012 season.
 
ACTS II: Clotheslined
7:30 p.m., January 19-21
ACTS and Babies in Peril present a frenzied series of 40 student-written sketches — all performed in an hour and a half. Modeled after the improv sketch group, The Neofuturists, a clothesline is strung across the room and hung with pieces of paper numbered 1-40. Each number represents a sketch. The audience calls out the number they want to see and the actors race to get through them all. The student-written sketch show is recommended for mature audiences and is written, directed and performed by students Travis Clark, Katelynn Kenney, Stephanie Mangin, Ryan Marks, Christina Olson, Colin Raehsler, Zack Truelson and Emily Wold.
 
ACTS is also holding a 50/50 raffle at the show where the winner goes home with half of the cash raised that night. $1 a ticket, 6 for $5.

The Kids are Pissin’ on the Front Lawn begins by introducing Abigail, a housewife, her strong-willed husband, Hammond, and their distant but quirky son, Geoffrey. On the night of a dinner party, Geoff's girlfriend, Maria, arrives shortly before Prudence and Reggie, friends of Abigail and Hammond. Through the course of the evening, details are revealed of their sordid past and their complex present.
