The long-anticipated return of the One-Act Festival finally happened! For those of you who aren't in the know, the One-Act Festival has multiple one-act plays (short plays; 2-30 minutes) that are completely student led in every aspect of the show (production, acting, direction, etc.). This year's festival was on January 16th and 17th and had 4 plays each night - 4 of which were written by South Delta Secondary's own Cameron Thomson and Sophia Merritt! Although it's never been the highest attended of the Equinox Theatre's events, the turnout was higher than expected and the event was a huge success! Congratulations to everyone involved!
