PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University Theatre opens its 2002-2003 season with STAGE One at 8 p.m., Oct. 23-26, in Daggy Hall’s Wadleigh Theatre.

STAGE One is in its fourth year with WSU Theatre and consists of five original one-act plays written, directed, acted and produced by students.

This year’s shows include “In His Image” by Mikael Kenoyer, “Two Balls for Little Jimmy” by David Sampson, “Tainted Love” by Sean Hall, “Pro-Life” by Ted Tremper and “What Goes Around” by Josh Evans.

STAGE One has a history of successful shows written by students. Each year a show has been selected to compete at the regional American College Theatre Festival, sponsored by the Kennedy Center. It is one of the highest honors for college plays. Past WSU shows to compete include “Hieroglyphics” by Sean O’Malley, “Deconstructing Eve” by Josh Carter and “A True Promise” by Jay Secatello.

The shows are not recommended for children due to strong language and mature subject matter.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and $4 for students. They can be purchased at the Daggy Hall Box Office or by calling (509) 335-7236. The office will be open the week of the show from 1:30-4 p.m. and 6 p.m. the night of performances.
