Last night was a big night again for Kelly and her friend Johanna. They had their directing debut of their one act play called, Bobby Wilson Can Eat His Own Face. Such a funny title and a very funny show. Before the show, the girls got to come out on stage and were introduced as the directors of their One Act. This was fun for them…a little bit of celebrity for the night. The girls got to choose from many scripts online and this one seemed to jump out to them. They knew they wanted a comedy and this one did not disappoint. They also got to cast all the characters. No one tried out, they just asked these kids if they would do it, and they all said yes. Everyone was perfect for their part. Nice job girls.
Here is a little synopsis about the show: Bobby Wilson has a tough life. His mom doesn’t trust him, his little sister is pure evil, and his school life is a disaster. After getting in trouble at school (through no fault of his own) for both sexual harassment and terrorist threats, he decides to do the only thing he can: run away and join a circus freak show.
Kelly and Johanna also had parts in the show. Johanna plays Bobby’s little bratty sister and she is also Futura…the girl who can see the future. Kelly also had two parts. She plays Bobby’s teacher and one of the circus freaks named, Telekinetic Lucy. She could levitate herself & other objects, such as chairs. Keep in mind, all of the freaks in this circus were all pretty awful at their talents. ha~
As the show continued, Bobby went through many troubles and one was with his gym teacher, played by Will. He was an ex-marine who made exercising a horrific experience for these teens and his voice was always in “marine-mode”, yelling all the time. Cracked us up. Of course, the kids were kind of nerdy and couldn’t even do a jumping-jack to save their lives. One of our favorite scenes of the night.
I know it’s hard to get all the humor from just my writing and these photos, but I sure wish you could’ve seen this one act play. If you ever get the chance and notice this title (you can’t forget it), go out and see it. Worth the 40 minutes of your evening.
