The semester is almost at its end, and all college students have the same stressful realization: Finals Week. It's the week where we all find ourselves without relaxation or a break from the books. However, some finals are ones that can serve as entertainment for others. Dr. Cory Johnson's Theater Directing class is about to put on their student directed one-act plays!
The class' six students will display their directorial debuts at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 13 and Tuesday, Dec. 14 in the Galvin Fine Arts Center Studio Theatre. There are no tickets necessary, so it's first come first serve basis. Doors will open at 6:30 pm each night.
(serio-comedy) Wasp, directed by Tony Stratton '12: An interesting look at the 1950s nuclear family where the father heads the house and everyone else is lost in their own questionings of the universe.
(comedy) For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls, directed by Grace Allen '12: A spoof on the classic Tennessee Williams play The Glass Menagerie. (Some suggestive language.)
(drama) Hello Out There, directed by Stephanie Seward '13: An incarcerated drifter and a lonely girl encounter each other only to start an unusual relationship. "This experience has definitely been interesting," says Seward about the directing class. "I've learned a lot about myself and how to communicate the ideas in my head to the actors in my show, which is sometimes a lot more difficult than expected."
(drama) Rain, directed by Kristen Jett '13: A play about the aftermath of an accident that alters a farm family's structure. "Rain is able to show the importance of being able to move on in life," Jett says. (Some adult language.)
(drama) The Window, directed by Val Zawada '13: A sick man and his new caretaker find an odd common ground on relating to each other. (Some adult language.)
(comedy) Sure Thing, directed by Aaron Randolph'12: A comedy that puts into blunt words just what the opposite sex wants in a life partner. (Some suggestive language.)
These are just once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, so be sure to take a break from your stress-migraines and come down to support these talented directors and actors!
