The West Georgia Theatre Company presents a remarkable night of entertainment with Life Is a Dream: An Evening of Ten Minute Plays. The show will run in the Townsend Center for the Performing Arts Dangle Theatre from Feb. 15-19 at 7:30 p.m. and the Feb. 19 and Feb. 20 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and free with your UWG student I.D.
This show follows the Theatre Company’s bi-annual tradition of producing an assortment of ten-minute plays written by University of West Georgia students and bringing them to life in the black box theatre.
The original Life is a Dream, written by Pedro Calderon de la Barca, has inspired all the eight short plays. This year, the genres of the motivated plays cover quite a wide range from enticing dramas to gut-busting comedies; from the pure at heart to the mind bending to the quite risqué, Life Is a Dream will leave you feeling satisfied and entertained.
Students have not only written these eight plays about dreams and their consequences, but each play has its own personal student costume designer. Students have also designed props and Sound. The ensemble cast includes Will Richardson (Kennesaw), Spencer Rich (Douglasville), Rachel Nastrom (Woodstock), Gabrielle Benson (Chicago), Dahlia Iam (Atlanta), Todd Presley (Newnan), Terrence Smith (Decatur) and Aaron Wilson (Willingboro).
The show contains adult content and situations. For more information, please call (678) 839 4700 or visit www.westga.edu/~theatre.
