Some 50 students have been meeting during the evening on Tuesdays and Thursdays since September to practice for One Act season with the play, “Oh, Zeus!” by T. Bradley.

The play centers on Hera, Zeus’ wife, who with the help of Iris, Aphrodite, and the Oracle, use the setting of a high school play about Odysseus to lift Zeus’ spirits with an opportunity to create another hero, much as he did in the past. The difficulties of high school actors putting on a play creates some fun scenes and responses from Zeus’ brothers, Hades and Poseidon. It all comes together when a mysterious pizza delivery boy gets made into a hero and saves the play.


The cast and crew are preparing for Conference competition on November 19. It is Lexington’s turn to host, so there will be nine schools providing one act entertainment for those who wish to come and observe. Lexington is scheduled to perform first at 9:00 A.M.

This year, district competition will be on November 29, in Gretna, NE. Lexington is scheduled to perform at 2:00 P.M.

Lexington will host its public performance on December 9, at 7:00 P.M. This will be free to the public to come and watch and then have the opportunity to interact with the cast and crew for pictures and socializing.
