Theatrical Magic: An Evening of One Acts

Directed by: Rick Davis and Melanie Kitchens O'Meara

An Invisible Tan: Two people meet on a beach at midnight. One of them hides a dark secret. It's a love story.

Dancing with Johnny DeMarco: An old woman watches her na?ve, much younger self anticipate a life of sunrises.

Amid Canyons and Mesas: A man wakes up one morning no longer sure what's real and what isn't. His wife helps him see the "truth."

One Popcorn Ball, One Baby Snickers, One All-Day Sucker: Jeff and Marian prepare for trick or treaters, but find themselves unprepared for their first caller, who changes them forever.

96 Layers of Concrete, Furniture, and Air: Sam Kent thinks he can fly using nothing but his own power. Susannah Winkin hopes to dissuade him from making the attempt.

Henry's Ear: Frankie has shot Henry's ear off. Henry seeks retribution: an ear for an ear. It's a comedy.

The Venting Machine: A doctor and a vending machine operator clash over a Mrs. Freshley honey bun.

Our revels now are ended ... A coda for the evening from The Tempest.

Professor Rick Davis is an Associate Professor and Assistant Chair in the Department of Communications and Professional Writing. He is also a playwright who has written 38 plays ? six full lengths, many one-acts, several musicals for children ? which have been produced on various stages: off-off-Broadway in NYC, in Los Angeles, and in theatres throughout the country. He has won several play writing awards and has twice received grants from the Georgia Council for the Arts. Several of his plays have been published, including most recently two one-acts in the anthology Short Play Festival Collection (from the San Luis Obispo, California, play competition). He recently performed his monologue, The Sword Swallower's Husband, in NYC at the Roy Arrias Theatre. He directs for the stage at Augusta State University and has had the exciting experience of directing Oedipus Rex in Greece.

Melanie Kitchens O'Meara is part-time faculty in the Department of Communications and Professional Writing. She received her Ph.D. and M.A. in Performance Studies from Louisiana State University. At LSU, Dr. O'Meara adapted, directed, and produced multiple productions for the main stage, including Across Disciplines: Performance Research and Response, The Body and Discipline and Etchings of Debutantes. She is the organizer of the Patti Pace Theatre and Performance Festival, an annual conference attended by teachers, students, scholars, and artists from schools across the country.
