Hopkins Royal Productions will present the 2019 Winter One Act performances at 7 p.m. on Feb. 7, 8, and 9 in the Hopkins High School Little Theater. This season’s collection of One Acts include a variety of short plays, comedies, and dramas.

“The One Act play is all about economy and focus,” said Natalie Foster, Royal Productions director. “The format really encourages students to dive deep into the craft in a short span of time...I hope that our Hopkins community will come experience it for themselves.”

Students will present five unique one-act productions including “Jerry Springer is God” by Matt Pelfrey, “12 Angry Jurors” by Reginald Rose, “Between Two Friends” by Stephen McFreely, “Paper Thin” by Lindsay Price, and “Speech!” by Brave New Workshop alumni Mike Fotis and Joe Bozic, which was performed at the 2010 Twin Cities Fringe Festival.

More than 60 Hopkins students serve as actors, stage managers, and production crew. The five plays span a variety of themes and topics probing what makes us human, how we relate to each other, what it means to live in a democracy, and how we react to violent events.

The one-act “Jerry Springer is God” will also be performed at the Minnesota State High School League’s Section 6AA One Act Play Festival on Jan. 22 and 23 at Edina High School.
