WWU Festival of One Acts kicks off tonight


COLLEGE PLACE — Festival of One Acts, the annual student-lead short drama performances at Walla Walla University, will be at 8 tonight, Saturday and Sunday at Village Hall, 204 S. College Ave.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

The show opens with “The Spot” by Steven Dietz and directed by Joshua Haddock. It illuminates that great world of politics behind the political television spot.

The show features Jennifer Landaverde, Andrew Woodruff, Jaclyn Archer, Elisa Westman, Elliot LaPlante, and Brooklynn Larson.

“Trifles” by Susan Glaspell and directed by Estée Pummel is next. A murder mystery where the only evidence to be found are mere trifles.

The show features Jerad Booth, Sean Longfellow, Kyle McCluskey, Rachel Scribner, and Kayla Albrecht.

New director Mitchell Kessler will present the short film “Hat Trick” by Alisha Lang. The film’s viewpoint is through the eyes of a magician and features alumnus Richard Wallace.

Then, “A Time of Green” by Anna Stillaman, and directed by Randall Lutz will be performed. Is it a story of a girl who happens to have the strangest day of her life? Or is it the story of her decent into madness?

The show features Madeleine Boyson, Kenton Gonzalez, and Rory Ross.

Last is “The Romancers” by Edmond Rostand and directed by Sabrina Tym. With loveable characters and a wit to boot, it’s Romeo and Juliet-esque, without all that pesky tragedy.

The show features Dustin Harter, Carlton Henkes, Faye Celestino, Colin Pummel, Brandon Pierce, and Charles Oroko.

Tickets at the door or reserved online are $10 general admission, $9 seniors and students.
