TRUCKEE, Calif. — Members of the Truckee High School Drama Club have been rehearsing a collection of scenes and monologues for months and will soon be ready to share them with the community in a series of evening performances on Jan. 8-10.

Works will include a number of monologues written by the actors themselves, as well as one-act plays and scenes. Refreshments will be on sale during intermission and there will also be raffle items available.

On Friday, Jan. 9, you can enjoy dinner and a show, as there will be barbecue items such as hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers for sale, courtesy of the Truckee High School Wolverine Booster Club. The barbecue runs from 6-7 p.m.

The actors are preparing for the Lenaea Theater Festival at the end of January, where many of these pieces will be entered for competition.

The Lenaea Theater Festival offers three days of workshops where high school actors from throughout Northern California perform before working theater professionals from across the country, known as “respondents.”

Respondents view and critique performances and ultimately award medals in Monologues, Duo Scenes, One Act plays, and Musical Theater performances. The top scoring performances in each category are invited for command performances on the final afternoon of the festival in Stage One of the Harris Center for the Arts/Three Stages at Folsom Lake College.

At the last two festivals, Truckee High School participants received a gold medal in Duo Scenes and One Acts, and a bronze medal and the Respondent’s Choice Award in Monologues.

Local businesses can support youth and the arts though donations of cash or items for the silent auction. For information, contact this year’s producer, Barbara Wilkinson, at 530-386-1929.
