Festival of One-Acts opens Saturday at Walla Walla University


COLLEGE PLACE -- The Festival of One-Acts, presented by the Walla Walla University Drama Department, will be performed at Village Hall, 204 S. College Ave.

Curtain is 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and March 1, 3 and 4.

The lineup of student-directed plays begins with "The Society" by J. Omar Hansen, directed by Rachel Scribner. Two men sit in a room creating a poets conference to purify the art. But when a note is slipped under the door it cannot be ignored, even though it may destroy "the society". The play features Bjorn Smars, and Kyle McClusky.

"Tape" by Jose Rivera and directed by Nicole Im, tackles the experience of someone facing a life not well lived. It features Joshua Haddock and Rebecca Brothers.

"The Ugly Duckling" by A.A. Milne and directed by Caitlin Stoodley, a play about a royal plot to marry off a "plain" daughter in a kingdom where beauty is required for a happily ever after. The cast features Scott Guthrie, Macy McVay, Shanoah Maine, Chris Reeve, Nichole Jansen, and William Colson.

"I Can't Think of It Right Now," by Nick Zagone and directed by alumna Kristen Taylor closes the lineup. What do you do when you just can't think of the name of a movie? The show features Ian Bilinowich and Michelle Skoretz.

Tickets are $10 general admission, $9 seniors and students. For reservations visit drama.wallawalla.edu.
