For the first time, Will ‘O the Wisp Productions is putting on a Midsummer Night of One Acts which will present two short plays written by young authors in the community.
Will O’ the Wisp is a Sackville theatre company dedicated to creating opportunities for young people to perform and produce theatre. Now in its third year, W.O.W is mounting a main stage production of the musical Annie, which opens in the historic Sackville Music Hall Aug. 8. This is the first year the company has expanded to present a season of more than one show.
The first one act play, Into the Fire, is a tale of adventure featuring a young boy who turns to piracy in an attempt to get enough money to save his family’s business, a bar called the Shadowy Loon. He meets a number of unsavory characters along the way, including the fearsome Dragon’s Beard and his band of swashbuckling pirates.
Written by 13-year-old Erich Bruning and starring 16-year-old Liam Stewart, the play promises to be fresh-faced and energetic. Also among the cast is first-time director Luke Haugen-Strand, who himself is only 18.
The second play was written by Will O’ the Wisp’s 19-year-old co-artistic director and founder, Marilla Steuter-Martin. The Muffin Man is a two-person play about a lover’s quarrel that threatens to end Jason and Daphne’s precarious two-year relationship. The short play draws on themes of communication, or lack thereof… and brings out the comedy of an all-too-familiar war of words.
The Muffin Man will be performed as a staged reading following the production of Into the Fire. Both plays are being presented inside the Campbell Carriage Factory on July 27, at 7 p.m.. Tickets are available at the door and are pay-what-you-can.
