Department of Theatre Arts


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.
