DeLaSalle Theatre presents three winter one acts.
Violet, or The (un)sinkable Stewardess
Directors – Matthew Glover and Danielle Siver
An original new comedy about the true life of Violet Jessup, an ocean liner stewardess and nurse who was aboard all three sister ships of the White Star Line when they met disaster. The first, aboard the Olympic in 1911 when it collided with another ship near the Isle of Wight; second, aboard the Titanic when it sank in 1912; and finally, aboard the Britannic in 1916 when it struck a mine and sank in the Aegean Sea during the first World War. She survived them all, and depending on how you look at it, was either a good luck charm or curse.
The Red Shoes
Director – Natalie Novacek
Based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tile. A poor little girl, adopted by a rich old lady, becomes so enamored of her new red shoes that she wears them everywhere. Our girl can’t resist her red shoes. They make her dance with delight, spin with possibilities. But what happens when she can’t get them off? What happens when she can’t stop dancing?
The Once and Future King
Director – James Buffington
An original one-act based on the legend of King Arthur. Arthur was guided by Merlin to unite the warring tribes of Britain into one kingdom. Now he seeks a relic to secure his kingdom – the Grail. The King soon finds that his most bitter enemies are closer than he thinks. This one-act is DeLaSalle’s entry in the MSHSL One-Act Festival.
