“Love and Lunacy” will abound when the Sun Valley Community School’s Middle School Masque presents its One-Act Play Festival.

The 18th annual One-Act Play Festival will take the stage at 7 p.m. tonight—Friday, Nov. 15—at the school’s theater. It will repeat at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16.

This year’s comedies take audiences from bungling bank robbers planning their next heist in “Precarious” to one man’s adventure in the “Twilight Zone” where he can’t get anything he asks for.

“The League of Semi-Super Heroes” portrays a group of not so superheroes who must come to grips with the realization that they are neither needed nor super. “Time Out” follows kids as they attempt to spring a friend from time out. “Trees” draws its inspiration from “The Wizard of Oz.” “Bros Before Girls” spoofs the dating scene. And “In the Kitchen” provides a hilarious glimpse into a cooking class final exam where no one seems to be prepared, not even the teacher.

Teacher Joel Vilinsky said he is proud of the way students take ownership over the experience.

“Last year’s festival featured six original scripts and those students have continued writing more plays while inspiring other students to pen their own. This year we have five student-written plays and more are in the works for production this winter and for next year’s festival.”

Many of the student playwrights began their scripts last year and have been revising them the past few months to fine tune them for the stage.

Eighth-grader Ruby Crist, for instance, wrote “In the Kitchen,” while Lucy Lamoureaux wrote “Trees;” Emma Klingenfuss, “Bros Before Girls,” and Maeve O’Connell, “Precarious.” High School Junior Julia Ott contributed her fourth original one-act play titled “Time Out.”

Each play is about 10 minutes long. Tickets are $5 and will be sold online at and at the door.
