ANNA — The Anna High School Drama Club is presenting the 55th annual Night of One Acts on Thursday, Nov. 3, and Saturday, Nov. 5. Three one-act comedies will be presented at 7 p.m. in Milliette Auditorium.

The first play is “You’re Driving Me Crazy!” and is directed by Carson Spangler. This play involves a nervous teacher who doesn’t seem to know the first thing about driving and a teenage girl who brings some unexpected guests to her first driving class.

Ava Bertke directs the second play, “13 Ways to Screw Up Your College Interview.” When two college recruiters at a prestigious university need to fill one last spot to keep their jobs, 13 eccentric, dimwitted and slightly-insane high school seniors are eager to come in for an interview.

The third play is “Attention Detention” and is directed by Bree Metzler. This play involves four honor roll students who have been summoned to detention. To avoid punishment, they each come up with a preposterous excuse for their tardiness.

Tickets are $7 and will be available at the door.
