Stagecraft students built a mini-set in an effort to apply all of the important techniques taught this semester by Professor Navalinsky. In a way to involve the students in a production process and do more than just “try out” the tools, professor Navalinsky challenged the students to design and build a half-scale show. Students design and discuss the drawings in class and then each group works on a scenic unit assigned according to skill level. The final day the students join together to assemble their project.

Snow…Sort of…White written by Ken Bradbury and directed by senior Krystal Love was a successful performance of quick wit and playfulness. This reader’s theatre performance brought together a cast of thirteen characters offering new opportunities for theatre exposure.
In contrast, sophomore Wesley Farnsworth’s successful direction of Neil LaBute’s Autobahn brought a more dramatic tone to the evening. This series of vignettes offered a unique perspective to conversations and circumstances shared in the everyday automobile. The department faculty anticipates more creative endeavors as the support for student projects continues.
Students present two plays at 7:00 pm on November 23-24, 2009. Snow…Sort of…White written by Ken Bradbury is being directed by Krystal Love and Autobahn: A Short-Play Cycle written by Neil LaBute is being directed by Wesley Farnsworth. Both shows will run in the Studio Theatre. Admission is by donation (cash only). Proceeds go to Alpha Psi Omega. Please come out and support our students! See you at the Theatre!
