KENNESAW, Ga.—The Department of Theatre and Performance Studies at Kennesaw State University presents a week of readings and performances entitled “New Works and Ideas” from March 25-30.
“New Works and Ideas” events are performed by emerging artists and are coordinated by Associate Professor and Artistic Director Dean Adams. “We are very excited about this event because this is the first year that we’ll have three different events going on at the same time.”
“Slasher,” the first scheduled event, will take place on Tuesday, March 25 and Thursday, March 27 at 8 p.m. in the studio theater. The innovation of “Slasher” lies in its use of film segments throughout the performance. An additional showing of “Slasher” may be performed on Sunday, March 30 at 3 p.m.
“The Breach”, based on events caused by the Hurricane Katrina, will take place on Wednesday, March 26 and Saturday, March 29 at 8 p.m. in the Howard Logan Stillwell Theater.
The third and last event is a series of student-written plays entitled “New Student Works” that will be presented on Friday, March 28 at 8 p.m. in the Stillwell Theater. KSU students submitted a total of 25 entries to be performed at this event and the winning entries will appear onstage.
All readings and performances aim to honor creativity and the writing process. Adams said, “This is a great chance to see creative works for free. We hope the community takes advantage of this opportunity.”
Although admission is free, donations are welcome. These events may include themes and language that may not be appropriate for all audiences. For further information call the KSU box office at 770-423-6650.
