The BHS theate program presented its second play of the year, One Stoplight Town, in February in the  Performing Arts Center.

BHS actors and crew performed Trap as their fall play and did a great job. However, I have to say I liked One Stoplight Town much better. The group of actors in One Stoplight Town were so enthusiastic and played the characters like it was themselves. 

The play is enjoyable and very community-oriented. The play is about what you might see if you stop for just a moment. It features a high-spirited, fun character, and lots of humor. It’s a play that does a great job emphasizing the different acts to get the points across and brings lots of emotion. The actors did a great job of emphasizing and bringing those emotions to the audience. They were all unique in their own way and made their characters come to life.

I enjoyed the different acts and loved the characters, Clarence and Melvin. Clarence was played by Jay Mabry and Melvin was played by David Williams. These two actors were so fantastic and knew how to please the crowd. Mabry and Willams were my favorite actors in the play. You could tell that they have a passion for performing and entertaining their audience.

I’m looking forward to seeing them perform in the Anastasia musical on April 28. I definitely will continue to watch the BHS theater. I really recommend watching any upcoming performance. Each time I have watched them perform they never disappoint. I would rate this play a 10 out of 10 because they put on a great show. eww eww eww eww eww ew eww eww eww eww eww eww eww eww eww
