Friday through Sunday, Oct. 23-25, students and members of the Theater Department put on performances of three Halloween-themed one-act plays. The plays were so popular that the Sunday performances were an encore from the high demand to see the plays the first two nights.

The three plays were “Campfire Ghouls,” “My Brother’s Keeper,” and Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart,” and during the scene changes between each play, actors and actresses rearranged the sets in Halloween costumes and white masks.

“It was definitely one of the more enjoyable and fun shows I’ve worked on, and I’m glad that was reflected in the outstanding turnout the White Room got,” said junior Mary Donahue, who controlled the lighting for the shows.

“Overall, I’d say I was so, so pleased with how everything came together,” said junior Nona Landis, who acted in the first play. “Everyone put a lot of work into the production. The costumes and set were just great. And I absolutely loved how everyone tried to be as creepy as possible.”
