EDWARDSVILLE – The theatre department from Metro-East Lutheran High School will present an evening of comedy, mystery and more when they perform three one-act plays during their production of “Three Chaotic Comedies.”

The unique set of three one-act comedies will begin with the swashbuckling class tale of “Treasure Island” then continue with “Epic Adventures in a Rinky-Dink Art Museum,” in which a group of teens find epic mystery and romance around every corner. The evening will conclude with a disco take on what would happen if Shakespeare characters starred in a reality TV dating show with the one-act play “Shakespeare’s Bachelorette.”

“There is something for everybody in this show,” said Judy Brown, director of the MELHS theatre program. “If you like swashbuckling action, we have that. If you like romance, we have that. If you like a little bit of mystery or comedy, we have that. We cover a lot of genres.”
