MV Allstars One-Act Play Selected for ThesCon

Dec 15, 2021 | All School, Blog, Fine Arts, Upper School News

The good news continues to come in for the MV Allstars, our Upper School performing artists.

For the first time ever, the School’s theatre troupe – Troupe 7702 – has been selected to bring their Fall Mainstage production of The One Act Play That Goes Wrong to Georgia ThesCon, an artist convention in February.

In the past, actors have been selected to represent the School at ThesCon, but this is the first time an entire production has been chosen from Mount Vernon. 

As some might say, “the snow must go on.” Well, in The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong, that’s exactly what happens. The Allstars spent months working on this play within a play, featuring a cast who provides laugh-out-loud comedy throughout. 

Clark Taylor shared of the show, “I love to have a creative, collaborative environment where we can experiment and throw it on the wall and see what sticks.” 

Stage Manager Shea Griffith added, “My favorite part about the production has been the comedic discovery process. This show is filled with so many comedic moments, so it has been fun working those moments out.”

Following the show’s successful run, Clark Taylor and Winn Scott, who plays Inspector Carter/Chris in the play, joined the Made in MV Podcast to give you a peek behind the curtain. Their episode can be listened to anywhere you get your podcast or watched here

Congratulations, MV Allstars! We are #MVProud.
