Congratulations to the Playwrights, Directors, Actors, and Technical crew—all collaborated to make an evening of new plays possible.
BJU theatre arts Senior, David Veatch, successfully completed his senior project this past week. David chose to create and develop a play for his project. David worked under Faculty member David Schwingle to explore a number of playwriting styles and techniques. Faculty member Erin Naler gave one-on-one feedback during the final phases of the process. The staged reading was directed by BJU M.A. Theatre candidate Nathan Pittack. Congratulations David!
For the first half of the Masters in theatre Thesis project, Ashley Gwillim and Amy Murray produced a staged reading of two new plays. Ashley Gwillim wrote the plays while Amy Murray played the central role in each.
The talk-backs were lively! Look for the production of Antigone that's coming next semester from Ashley and Amy. This production will complete their Thesis work.
