“The Directing Projects”

7 p.m.

Arts 271

Support Intro to Directing students this week by attending one-act plays. Students in the course go through the process of choosing a play, holding auditions, casting, acquiring the rights to produce the play, directing the play, choosing costume and sound and identifying basic lights. The performances are free and open to the public. Any Metropolitan State University of Denver student, faculty or staff member is eligible to audition as well as the greater community. It is a great way to support students, see a few faculty and staff perform and have another arts and entertainment opportunity on campus. For more information, please contact Megan Euler, production manager, Theatre.
