Moorhead’s one-act play is currently in the works. A one act play describes itself completely. It’s a play that’s only one act long, and contains several different elements to create a story. These plays run for thirty-five minutes, and are competitive. An ideal one-act play, tries to have a minimal amount of set changes and technical demands as possible.

Jude Barsch, a senior at Moorhead High, has been dedicated to this program for 4 years. “My favorite thing about the one-act, would be the fact that I have the chance to live other people’s lives for 6 to 8 weeks, and interact with other characters, and go to competitions. Says Barsch. “It’s really a big bonding experience that you can’t get in most places.” Not only has this program provided Barsch with great experiences, but also some great life lessons as well. “It’s taught me to work with people in ways I hadn’t imagined before, and learn to get over your differences really quickly in order for the show to go on.”

Moorhead will host the North Subsection 8AA One-Act Play competition on Thursday, Jan. 24 in the auditorium. If they place in the top three, they will advance to sections on Jan. 31 at Becker HS. A top finish there will send the Spuds to the MSHSL State Festival on Feb. 8 at St. Catherine University in St. Paul.
