At the Bea Wood Studio Theater on April 13, at 7:30 p.m. students from theater were performing six different plays.

Tickets for the showing were $5. Once you bought a ticket a program of the night was handed out. Then you seated yourself and wait for the show to begin. Fifty-four Students, faculty and members of the community attended the show.

“I thought tonight went really well it was one of our best shows, it went very smooth,” said Steven Kintner, technical theater freshman.

The plays lasted three hours from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

“We auditioned before Christmas break and started rehearsing after spring break,” said Rebekah Gardner, theater freshman.

Except for a few, most people have directed or acted in plays before.

“This was my first time doing something like this and I enjoyed doing it,” said Nicole Smalls, theater junior, who was also the director of the last play called Only We Who Guard The Mystery Shall Be Unhappy.

There were 17 actors in total.

“Just being in a show that has so many different shows that has so many people which makes the rehearsal process and the dressing room process more fun because, I’m with all of my friends,” Kintner said.


Putting something like this together involves not just directors and actors. There were more than 40 people contributing to this, whether it was production stage manager or poster design all in order to put on a show for the audience.

“The arts enhances the learning experiences and because we go to a liberal arts college and we are given the opportunity to enhance our learning experience that we should take advantage of that,” said Rachel Shipley English sophomore.

There was nothing but positivity from the audience after each play.

“I thought they did a wonderful job my favorite act was The Actor’s Nightmare because it was realistic but also had a very humorous side to it making me laugh through most of it,” said Mariela Portugal, social work sophomore.
