Anybody looking for an evening of laughter and fun entertainment should check out the two one act plays being performed by Eagle Butte High School drama students next week.

"People can expect a light-hearted, fun, comical evening," said EBHS drama teacher, Scott Payeur. "The first play is more of a drama, but the second one is a full-on, self-aware comedy."
The first play, "imperfect Proposal" is more drama than comedy as a young couple learns more about themselves through a series of interruptions and interference.
"A young man invites his girlfriend to the park to propose to her, but they keep getting interrupted," said Payeur. "Through this process, they learn a lot about each other and are shocked by what they learn."
The second one-act play takes the audience through the goings-on behind the scenes of a high-school production. Payeur describes "All I Really Need to Know I Learned from being in a Bad Murder Mystery" as being a full-on comedy.
"It's about a group of high school students who are rehearsing and this is a hysterical look at what goes on behind the scenes," he said, adding that there are all of the accurate stereotypes, including an over-burdened stage manager and an actor who cares more about snacking than acting.
A narrator leads the audience through the play.
While the drama class has Drama 20 and Drama 30 students, the latter are focusing on directing, so Payeur was mindful of that when finding suitable play options for the students.
"I looked for potential options for them, then brought them to the students to see what struck their interest," he said, adding that the students will be directing and starring in the plays.
The shows for the two one-act plays take place at the Medicine Hat Public Library theatre on Dec. 12-13, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the show starting at 7 p.m.
