This is the first time in years that the theatre program will be doing a period piece with period appropriate costumes .  Our reciprocal agreement with many local theatre companies, spearheaded by our brilliant costume designer Mary Waldhart, and with Chris Dunham’s set design, this is ensured to be a stunning production. We are also planning on working with the gallery to display some period costumes (with art of the era from the gallery collection) as well.  This runs Feb 27-March 7. Tickets will go sale January 26.

Student Directed One-Acts

One Acts

Thursday, April 30 at 7:30, Friday, May 1 at 7:30, Saturday, May 2 at 2:00 & 7:30

Contemporary one-act plays directed by Edgewood Theatre Arts students:  fresh, funny, thought-provoking and smart, this variety pack of plays showcases the talents of our students onstage and behind the scenes. 
The theatre department has grown so much of late, that we have had to change our requirement for this.   In the past all majors were required to direct, but now this production will be a collaborative capstone experience of the One Act Play production class where some students will still direct, but others will take over other areas of design and production so that more students can have a meaningful collaborative production experience, not limited to directing. Tickets go on sale April 1st. and this will run April 30- May 2.

Shadows in the Sea

May 5 at 1 pm and 7 pm
Anderson Auditorium
Free

Students from the Theatre For Young Audiences class will once again research, write, rehearse and tour an original piece, this year highlighting the issue of the health of ocean life and coral reefs.  This is the seventh original production for young audiences produced by that class, which not only tours to schools, but also brings students to our campus for a free show in the Anderson Auditorium.  We also always do a production, free and open to all, on an evening in the last week of classes.  This will run May 5 and tour to area schools on May 7.
