Two Cal U students perform on stage

The Department of Music and Theatre opens its spring season with “An Evening of Creativity,” featuring a one-act play and two dances selected and performed by Cal U students.

Performances are scheduled at 7 p.m. Feb. 23-24, and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Feb. 25 in the Blaney Theater in Steele Hall.

The show opens with a 20-minute one-act play, Post-its® (Notes on a Marriage), written by actor, writer and comedian Paul Dooley and his wife, dramatist and screenwriter Winnie Holtzman. 

Emily Smith ’14, a graduate student in the school counseling program, directs the play about a contemporary long-term relationship. 

“This one-act really spoke to me through the emotions and nuances that were presented in the relationship between the two characters,” said Smith, who was an undergraduate theater major and now works as a graduate assistant in the department.

“I thought it would be important to display all the ups and downs of a relationship. It’s also really unique in the way it is performed.”

The “Evening of Creativity” also features “Finding Your Way,” a student-choreographed piece by the Cal U Dance Ensemble, and “Behind Closed Doors,” a dance choreographed by faculty member Diane Buffington.

Junior Kitty Hoffman is the production’s stage manager. Sound and design are handled by seniors Jeffrey Higgins and John Boldt.
