The Mount Vernon Theater Arts Program presented “One Lane Bridge” this past weekend. “One Lane Bridge,” is a play written by Stephen Gregg in 2009 that displays the story of a mysterious woman, Samantha, and a timid teenage boy, Eli.  

The play takes place on a snowy winter night when Eli picks up Samantha on the side of the road. Their destination is Home Depot. Eli soon realizes that Samantha seems a bit ‘off’ as they share scary stories with each other.

Eli was played by Josiah Arnett and Samantha was played by Maggie McClelland. These Mount Vernon High School students portrayed these spooky characters amazingly well.

The play was perfectly terrifying, especially with menacing effects the cast members created, such as those who hid behind the trees and made eerie noises. The set was perfect for the creepy story, fit with a fog machine and dim lighting.

The sound effects worked great with the plot and the so did the stage set. Allison Flores, sound crew head, said this about the creation of the play effects: “A lot of work went into making and choosing the background songs for the play. We had to choose music and effects to fit every scene and decide when exactly they should be played.”

If you didn’t get to see “One Lane Bridge,” I would recommend that you see the Theater Department’s next play, “The Secret Garden” by Gary Peterson. You won’t regret it.

    I love this article as One Lane Bridge was definitely an amazing production by our school’s theatre! I can’t wait to see more articles about all the upcoming theatre productions!

    The article was okay, but it didn’t really intrigue me like I had hoped. There were some phrases that briefly grabbed my attention, such as the first sentence in paragraph two: “The play takes place on a snowy winter night when Eli picks up Samantha on the side of the road.” However, the next sentence just sort of kills the mood. There was also a grammatical error in the first sentence in the fifth paragraph: “The sound effects worked great with the *plot and the so did* the stage set.”
