Sandy, a nervous and shy girl who lacks all self-esteem, has taken a job with the So-Long Travel Agency. What she doesn’t know is that the owners of the travel agency, Lucy and Carlson, have a nasty fondness of robbing museums. Soon enters the mysterious Samuel Hahmberger who asks Sandy to help him smuggle a few circus stars out of town. As luck would have it, Sandy arranges the covert travel plans the same day as Lucy and Carlson plan their heist which is the same day hospital aides and police show up searching for escapees from the local mental institution. This crazy group changes Sandy’s perspective on life and gives her the confidence to wake up tomorrow and start anew.
“The play has a very sweet and warm message about belonging and acceptance. And there is a twist at the end that just grabs the heart, and is very unexpected. This show is a collection of crazy and love all in a single play that portrays the need in all of us to find who we are in this world,” said Director, Jake Wilson. “Each character brings his or her own interesting twist on what it means to belong to a community. I hope the audience will take home the idea that it’s okay to be a little crazy because there are others just like you. I hope the audience gets a sense of belonging and warm feelings from this production.”
This Flathead High School Theatre Production is presented by the Acting 4 class. As part of the Acting 4 experience this production is produced completely by FHS students. From tryouts to the final curtain call these students experience all aspects of theatre from the challenging tasks of directing and acting to set design and lighting.
“Acting 4 is about taking the talent, the skill, the ideas, and the experience of all of the students and crashing them together into a wonderful painting portrayed onstage for the audience to marvel at. It is an entirely student directed experience, with the classroom teacher acting as mentor and supervisor,” said Wilson. “The characters in this play fit extremely well with our class, and we have all easily taken on a role and become it. From this, we understood that our characters would be magnificently crazy…just what we wanted. The show isn’t focused on being a happy play, or a sad play but more like an inner connection between the characters and the audience. We hope the audience will fall in love with at least one character, and they can say ‘Yeah, that’s the character for me!’”
The cast of “One of Our Clowns is Missing” includes Desirae Fauske, Jake Wilson, Sarah Christensenova, Freya Woidniok, Brandon Shores, Eric Hogan, Beki Hafemeyer, Dylan Schroeder, Isabeau Roettig, Zoei Krohling, Anna Hayes, Anna Hayes, Freya Woidniok and Jesse Francis.

FLATHEAD HIGH SCHOOL THEATRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTS
THE SENIOR IB PRODUCTION OF
September 6, 7, and 8 at 7:00 pm in the
David M. Hashley Theatre at FHS
The Flathead High School Theatre Department’s Acting 2 class will present “All the World’s a Stage” featuring two one-act plays: “The Shakespeare Project” and “All I Need to Know I Learned By Being in a Bad Play” May 18 & 19 at 7:00 pm in the David M. Hashley Theatre at FHS.
Tickets for “All the World’s a Stage” are $7 for adults, $5 for children, students and senior citizens and are available at the FHS Main Office, Photo Video Plus and The Bookshelf.
“These one-act plays are two contrasting styles of drama to highlight what these actors can do and create a full experience for the audience,” said Acting 2 Advisor and Director of FHS Theatre, Valeri McGarvey.
“The Shakespeare Project,” is a compilation of scenes and monologues adapted by James Zager from some of William Shakespeare’s greatest works. Zager has successfully adapted these enduring tales into a masterful contemporary piece. With settings from a teenager’s bedroom to the wrestling ring, “The Shakespeare Project” is a perfect example of Shakespeare’s timeless lessons found in his most famous characters.
“I wanted to do something with Shakespeare, but I did not want it to be overwhelming for my Acting 2 students who are brand new actors. ‘The Shakespeare Project’ contains some classic Shakespeare monologues and scenes that are re-imagined and updated,” said McGarvey. “It provides a great opportunity for my more experienced actors to have a fun challenge and to introduce my new students to Shakespeare on stage.”
The second play, “All I Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play,” is a farce about all the things that can go wrong when being in a bad play. “It’s hilarious, and is sure to leave our audience laughing on their way out!” said McGarvey.
Both one-act plays pay tribute to the timeless works of Shakespeare. “The ‘Bad Play’ that is being produced is ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘The Shakespeare Project’ has the balcony scene re-imagined as two teenagers texting each other,” said McGarvey. “To make the connection complete the same actors play Romeo (Drew Crosby-Newman) and Juliet (Devinne Schultz) in both plays.”
Acting 2 is one of nine classes offered at FHS as part of the Theatre Program curriculum. Acting 2 students learn about various theories of acting in the classroom setting and then participate in a theatre production which allows the students to experiment with acting techniques and creating character. The students also are responsible for set, lighting, costume design, and publicity for the show. They learn about the many facets of what it takes to put on a complete production.
“This class contains a very diverse bunch of students. Some have never been on stage at all, and some are veterans of many productions,” said McGarvey. “I love teaching Acting 2 because of the diversity. It is fun for me to introduce new students to the thrill of live performance, and to also grow and encourage leadership skills in the more experienced students.”
ACTING 4 PRODUCTION
What is the price of your soul? Adapted by John Osborne from the novel by Oscar Wilde, this classic tale of ambition, vanity and desire will be presented April 9 & 10 at 7:00 pm in the David M. Hashley Theatre at Flathead High School.
The play tells of a young man named Dorian Gray who is the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil's, and becomes enthralled by Lord Henry's world view. Embracing a new hedonism, Lord Henry suggests the only things in life worth pursuing are beauty and pleasure. Realizing that one day his beauty will fade, Dorian whimsically expresses a desire to sell his soul to ensure the portrait Basil has painted would age rather than him. Dorian's wish is fulfilled, plunging him into a world of immorality and depraved behaviors. With each sin appearing as a disfigurement of his aging form, the portrait serves as a reminder of the effect each act has upon Dorian's soul.
The Flathead High School Theatre and Departments will present the Broadway rock musical "Godspell" presented February 28 and March 1, 2 and 3 at 7:00 pm in the David Hashley Theatre at FHS. Tickets, which are $10 for adults and $8 for children, students & senior citizens can be purchased at the FHS Main Office, The Bookshelf and Photo Video Plus.
“Godspell,” one of the longest running off-Broadway musicals since 1971, is a musical celebration of the Gospel of Matthew brought to life in song and dance. The rock opera is interspersed with modern music set primarily to lyrics from traditional songs along with non-traditional musical instruments and features such memorable songs as "Day by Day," "All Good Gifts" and "By My Side."
“FXT 8” is a unique compilation of one-act plays written, directed and performed by the students of FHS. This year’s collection includes 10 original plays ranging from dramas to comedies. The plays include: “Human Nature,” “10,000 Cigarettes,” “Life of the Forgotten,” “Mind the Gap,” “Facebooked,” “Hooked,” “Choices,” “New Kid’s Guide to Fitting In,” “The Brown Shoes,” “While the Auto Waits” and “Experimenting with Experimental Theatre.”

Thank you to everyone who came and auditioned for this show. Auditioning can be difficult, but be proud that you showed up and had the courage to be vulnerable and try new things. Regretfully, not everyone who auditioned can be cast in this production. Don’t sweat it if your name is not on the cast list. There will be other opportunities in your future. Feel confident about yourself for taking the risk. That, on its own…is success.
All the best,
