The Walla Walla University drama department will present the fourth annual Festival of Shorts in Village Hall on March 2, 7, and 9 at 8 p.m., and March 3 and 10 at 2 p.m.

This year the Festival of Shorts will include seven short films directed by students and four plays performed by students. There will be a mix of genres ranging from drama to comedy. On general each short is professionally written, although a few plays and films are written by students.

“I’m always excited to see what the student and guest directors come up with. I love that we get to see where their artistic visions shine through, and the different styles of theater and film make for a lot of variety and a great show,” said Meghann Heinrich, drama manager and senior communication major.

Ticket prices are $10, $9, and $8 for general admission, seniors, and WWU students respectively. To reserve tickets visit drama.wallawalla.edu or facebook.com/wwudrama
