Festival of Shorts set at Walla Walla University


COLLEGE PLACE — The Festival of Shorts 2014 will be presented by wwudrama students with 8 p.m. shows on March 1-2, and 6-9 at Village Hall, 204 S. College Ave., across from the Walla Walla University administration building. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m.

Each production will be directed by wwudrama alumni.

This year’s lineup of plays includes:

“Dueling Phobias” by Brenda Cohen and Jonathan Mayer, directed by Kristen Taylor. It is a game of one-upmanship that comes in the world of a waiting room. The show features Mason Neil and Jordan Stephan.

“60 Years, To Life” by Nick Zagone, directed by Ryan Sturges. This unique monologue asks, in its comedic way, what is too much for a relationship to handle? The show features Abigail Wissink.

“The M Word” by Alan Ball, directed by Jerry Entze. When a proposal becomes a negotiation, the business side of the relationship is the key. The show features Sabrina Tym and Jonathan Stephan.

“After Magritte” by Tom Stoppard and directed by Joshua Haddock. Explaining a famous painting by Magritte, this show is a wild ride in the absurd and hilarious.

The show features Grant Parfitt, Micah Hall, Randall Lutz, Mariah Carlyle, Brianna Eckler.

“Check, Please” by Jonathan Rand and directed by Bradley Nelson. How many dates does it take to get the right one? Nobody knows, but figuring it out sure is funny. The show features Brandon Pierce, Dustin Harter, Richard Wallace, Jalynn Berglund, Stephanie Septembre, Morgan Sanker.

As a final production, a great short film by student director Carlton Henkes will be shown.

Tickets are $8-$10. Tickets for the Thursday performance are $2, at the door only.
