With COVID limiting live theatre, I’m working with Namron Player’s Theatre again to bring three one-act plays to video. As the videographer and editor, I also created three promo videos for everyone to share in advance of the big premiere on Saturday, February 27.
“Too Much to Bare” written by Ted Satterfield directed by Jane Gibbons:
Bailey is a recent college graduate who has began her first teaching job in a small town. She was recruited to come to this town as the school system struggles to attract and retain new teachers. The recruiting tour had rolled out the red carpet for recent grads and made the sleepy town seem like it was very quaint and welcoming, but Bailey soon begins to see how suspicious townspeople are of outsiders.
“Barely Baptized” written by Melanie Wilderman directed by Sheryl Martin:
In his new career path as a youth minister, Jake faces a tough crowd: the teenagers in the youth group who absolutely adored his predecessor. When the overly optimistic new minister tells the teens they can “ask him anything,” the questioning takes some problematic turns, some funny, others heading in a darker direction, ultimately landing Jake in the middle of a biblical debate he never would have predicted.
“Meemaw’s Bear Tales” written & directed by Sarah King Bartell:
A grandmother separated from her grandkids tries to entertain them with some good old southern folktales as you’ve never heard them before, with brand-new origin stories such as How the Bear Learned to Hibernate, How the Mouse Got Her Long Tail, and How the Fish Got Her Gills. These charming stories examine Americana and stereotypical American traits such as resourcefulness, cunning, and persistence.
