SMC Theatre Program hosts 'Keeping It Real: A Festival of One-Acts'

The Theatre Program at Saint Mary's College is proud to announce the cast and creatives of the upcoming mainstage production,? "Keeping It Real: A Festival of One-Acts,"?a fully-produced evening of world premiere plays under the artistic leadership of the Theatre Program Class of `22. The production will run from April 21-24 in LeFevre Theatre.
Written, directed and performed by students, the performance highlights themes of identity, miscommunication, rebellion, and youth culture. It is a glimpse into the minds of rising theatre artists, led by seniors Sejal Bahl (playwright/performer), Thomas Bradvica (playwright), Grace Clinton (playwright), Audrey Edmondo (projections designer), Aero England (playwright/performer), Naomi Kalter (dramaturg/director), and Sarah Shaughnessy (playwright). What's on their minds? Misunderstandings, hijinks, speaking their truths, and the absurdity of Collegiate Seminar.
"What a powerful opportunity to highlight and elevate the work of our exceptional senior class," said Theatre Program Director Deanna?Zibello. "We've been building towards this moment for years, and now we're at the place where the years of training, supported by production resources, gives our students an extraordinary platform to showcase their talents."
