PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University’s School of Music and Theatre Arts will celebrate 75 years of theater by producing a one-act play festival entirely produced by students.
The “Stage One” festival, set Nov. 10-13, features four original, one-act plays performed in one evening. Curtain times are 8 p.m. in Daggy Hall’s R.R. Jones Theatre. Members of S.T.A.G.E., the school’s theater club, wrote the show material.
“Perceptions Deception,” written by Anthony Smith of Olympia, is about a young woman’s struggle between her good and bad consciences. She discovers the deception of her perception through an accepted marriage proposal.
Jay Secatello of Tumwater wrote “A True Promise,” a comedy set among a group of college students where love is a frequent topic.
“The Best Cyrano in the World” is best described as one director, one actor, one stage hand and mass chaos in 15 minutes. Joel Greggain of Clarkston wrote the play.
The final piece is “Somewhere in Between,” written by Raymond Franz of Pullman. It is a comical look at the death of a businessman who struggles with his existence in the afterlife while meeting some interesting people.
Tickets for “Stage One” are $4 for students with ID, $6 for senior citizens and $8 for adult general admission. For more information on the shows and other upcoming events, call the WSU theater box office at 509/335-7236.
