( Solana Beach , CA ) – The Theatre School @ North Coast Repertory Theatre will present student-written, student-directed One Acts, June 4-6 at 7 p.m.


Three young playwrights will share their ideas on dealing with relationships, societal issues, ethics and laughter in three original plays.


“I am always astounded by the insight and depth in the thinking of young people today,” says Joe Powers, Director of the Theatre School and Educational Outreach. “Each of these plays shows the students’ own voice and their strong convictions.”


The Test, by Garrett Peterson of Rancho Santa Fe, is a play about ethics and cheating on a test. When several classmates are caught cheating on a test and all are held accountable, what is the right thing to do? Cast and crew include: Alynia Phillips of Carlsbad , Amanda Cowles of Solana Beach , Cameron Peterson of Encinitas, Sophia Adame of Cardiff and actor mentors Sherri Allen of Del Mar and Gerry Maxwell of San Diego .


The Jolly Pocket Postman by Allan Ahlberg, was adapted for the stage by Eilee Bissell of Leucadia from the popular children’s book of the same name. It is a wacky wonderful spoof on fairy tales. Cast and crew include Tiffany Lehman of Encinitas, Alynia Phillips of Carlsbad, Nick Barnes of Solana Beach, Emma Hager of Carmel Valley, Isabelle Oldham of Encinitas, Kelsey Barnhill of Cardiff, Natalie Dorosewicz of Solana Beach, Kate Chamberlain of Solana Beach, Katie Macaluso of Carlsbad, Jackie Spencer of Rancho Penasquitos, Eva Loeser of Rancho Santa Fe and Shannon Link of Solana Beach.


Lockdown, by Solana Beach resident Victoria Buchholz, tells the story of five students stuck together in a poetry class in a school lockdown. They soon learn it is not a drill and that there is a man with a gun on the high school campus.  Many of the students in the room have a strained relationship with one another and each gives their own insight about the other members trapped in the room and the goings on in today’s frantic world. Cast and crew include Sara Epstein of Rancho Santa Fe, Melanie Kaplanek of Carlsbad, Monica Wall of San Diego, Robyn Manion of San Diego, Remy Remigio of San Diego, Austin Evans of Carmel Valley, James Patterson of Del Mar and Sophie Adame of Cardiff.
