If you are in need of some theatrical entertainment, you do not have to go far. The 2014 Kansas City Kansas Community College Student One-Act Play Festival opens tonight.

This year’s festival is offering a retelling of three favorite scripts from years past. In “MajorDomo,” by Chris Wilson and David Ruis, an estranged husband and wife attempt to reconcile in the arena of slam poetry set in a smokey jazz club.

“Marked,” by Hiram Williams, is a tribute to the film noir world of detectives, missing diamonds and dames. Finally, “In Case of Zombies” by Brian Ramsay, focuses on what else, but a cabin in the woods where five students think they are all set for a weekend of camping and fun.

Evening performances of the plays are at 8 p.m. tonight Friday and Saturday at the KCKCC Performing Arts Center, 7250 State Ave. There is also a matinee performance at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, April 13. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for non KCKCC Students and senior citizens. KCKCC students, faculty and staff can get free admission by showing a KCKCC ID card at the door.

A word of warning: this is an evening of adult-type fare. Strong language and adult language are included in these on-act plays. This is not a good event for children.
