Description: 

PLEASE NOTE: MASKS ARE REQUIRED, but vaccination cards will not be checked, even though we encourage you to be fully boosted.

The Theatre Program at Saint Mary’s College is proud to announce the cast and creatives of our upcoming mainstage production, Keeping It Real: A Festival of One-Acts, a fully-produced evening of world premiere plays under the artistic leadership of the Theatre Program Class of ‘22.

This student-written, -directed and -performed festival of new works highlights themes of identity, mis/communication, rebellion, and youth culture. It's a glimpse into the minds of rising theatre artists, led by seniors Sejal Bahl (playwright/performer), Thomas Bradvica (playwright), Grace Clinton (playwright), Audrey Edmondo (projections designer), Aero England (playwright/performer), Naomi Kalter (dramaturg/director), and Sarah Shaughnessy (playwright). What's on their minds? Misunderstandings, hijinks, speaking their truths, and the absurdity of Collegiate Seminar.

Theatre Program Director, Deanna  Zibello, says, “What a powerful opportunity to highlight and elevate the work of our exceptional Senior Class. We’ve been building towards this moment for years, and now we’re at the place where the years of training, supported by production resources, gives our students an extraordinary platform to showcase their talents.”

April 21-24 with on-demand viewing available throughout May '22.
