Senior Studios Represent Year-Long Effort From Graduating Drama Majors
A journey that began more than a year ago will come to an end this weekend for four
senior drama majors as they present their directorial debuts, the senior studios.
"These students have been working with their plays for almost 14 months. After choosing
their senior studios in the fall of junior year, majors write a 20-30 page research
paper before designing their productions senior year," said Kyle Lemieux, assistant
professor and chair of drama. "I invite everyone to enjoy the end result of all this
hard work by these four seniors and their student casts and crews."
Set in hell, an abandoned warehouse, turn-of-the-century Hungary and on Midsummer's
Eve, these plays represent the culmination of four years of dramatic study.
Helen Furton directs Jean-Paul Sartre's "No Exit;" Caeli Austin takes on "The Eagle
with Two Heads" by Jean Cocteau. Alan Arkin's "Virtual Reality" was Paul Fojut's choice.
Erin Kleiber directs "Miss Julie" by August Strindberg.
The performances, which pair the plays in sets of two, run from Dec. 5-8. "Virtual
Reality" and "Miss Julie" play on Dec. 5 and 7 at 8 p.m. and on Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. "No
Exit" and "The Eagle with Two Heads" play on Dec. 6 and 8 at 8 p.m. and at 2 p.m.
on Dec. 7.
