Festival of Short Plays closes BSC ArtsQuest

Published: Apr 29 2015
Bismarck State College presents its Festival of Short Plays for adult audiences Wednesday and Thursday, May 6-7, in Sidney J. Lee Auditorium.

Sponsored by the BSC Drama Club, the series features plays chosen by student directors, who manage all aspects of their production from auditions and costumes to set and lighting. Shows are 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. both days.

Tanner Hostetter (Mandan) directs "The Tell Tale Heart," a play adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's gothic horror classic. His cast is Robert Day (Mandan), and Brittany Bearsheart, Mercer Sage and Nicholas Winistorfer, all of Bismarck.

Clayton Perala (Bismarck) interprets "Sure Thing" by David Ives, a comic tale of the many ways in which people fail to connect in the modern world of dating. Nolan Hauge and Heather Kaiser (Bismarck) portray the buffered couple.

Taylor Olsen (Sawyer) explores "The Man Who Went Insane from Money" by Ann Weuhler with cast members Cody Schirado, Nick Van Sickle and Katelyn Grothier, all of Bismarck. The comedy is a story about the dehumanizing effects of money in our time.

Admission is free for this last event of BSC ArtsQuest, the college's month-long celebration of the arts.
