The Bismarck State College Theatre Arts program presents its Festival of Short Plays for adult audiences May 4-5 in Sidney J. Lee Auditorium.
Set for 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. both days, the seven one-act plays are produced by the One Act Production class. Students are responsible for play selection, artistic vision, marketing auditions, casting, and coordinating with technical director and instructor Dean Bellin.
Casts for the 10-minute shorts are BSC students, alumni, University of Mary students and members of the local community.
Student directors and their plays are Lawrence Luger – “My Body” (a dark, distorted, yet humorous reflection on society); Frank Vondra – “Stubble” (teachers behaving like their students); Jonah Eslinger – “Something Like Loneliness” (drama about a noise complaint); Robert Day – “You Belong to Me” (love and loss); Meghan McNeil – “Unprimed” (relationships and paintings); Aeryn Mehlhoff – “Girls Pray or The Ketchup Stigmata” (students unprepared for Spanish final); and Tanner Hostetter – “The Proxy” (wife revenge).
The Festival of Short Plays is presented at no charge during ArtsQuest, BSC’s month-long celebration of the arts.
