Theatre Arts | Senior Seminar Project Original Performance

On Monday, 12/19 at 7:30, the seniors will be presenting their capstone project in Rehearsal Hall A (right next to the new Black Box Theatre in the Rita Tallent Picken Center for the Arts and Humanities). They have written and developed a theatrical piece based on the Veteran’s Book Project. This project will be coming to our gallery, thanks to Curator Patricia Briggs who brought this project to my attention.

The students have taken some of the many words and images from this amazing body of work to create their response to these veteran’s experience of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They will be performing the piece for the department, along with their family and friends. Some of you may be interested as well. The piece should run about an hour. It is free and will be followed by a talk-back.
