The Wayne High one-act play production team will showcase their competition piece during a public performance in the lecture hall at Wayne High School on Monday, Nov. 20.
The 7 p.m. performance will be a play called “Property Rites,” written by Alan Haehnel, and is the story of sculptures that come to life.
In the story, Kyle Macmanus has invested millions in a high-tech work of art -- 15 human-figure sculptures programmed to perform thousands of movements, monologues, dialogues, and more.
However, as Kyle is preparing to sell the sculpture, it malfunctions and the figures come to life. As each one struggles to achieve autonomy, they begin a fatal race against their desperate owner's destructive plan.
The Monday performance is free and open to the public. Concessions will be for sale, including AquaPop popcorn. Proceeds from concession sales will go to the Wayne High one-act team.
The team will compete in B-4 district action on Friday, Dec. 1 at Central Community College in Columbus. District champions advance to state Friday, Nov. 8 at the Johnny Carson Theater in Norfolk.
