GREENWOOD, S.C. – Several college undergrads will have the spotlight focused on their directing skills during the 2017 Student-Directed One-Act Plays, held on the campus of Lander University next week. Coordinated by the Department of Mass Communications and Media Studies, the program is an opportunity for senior-level students to direct theatrical plays before an audience.
Performances take place in the Abney Cultural Center’s Greenroom Studio (CC-220) beginning at 8 p.m. on March 30 and 31; and at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 1.
One-act plays include:
* “The Plot to Assassinate the Chase Manhattan Bank,” by Carl Larsen; directed by Pamela Mitchell
* “The Unwanted,” by Walter Wykes; directed by Marcus Johnson
* “Autumn Leaves,” by G.L. Horton; directed by Ryan Ball
The community is invited to these free performances, however due to adult content, all patrons must provide a college ID or be at least 18-years of age to be admitted. Seating is very limited and guests are encouraged to arrive early. Doors open 30 minutes before show time. The program is FALS-approved for Lander students seeking credit.
