The Walla Walla University drama program, wwudrama, will be ending their 2022–23 season with their annual Festival of Shorts. This festival will showcase WWU students’ talents through their direction on short films and participation in one-act plays and an original choreographed dance.
The show consists of two plays, five films, and one original dance all under the comedy and drama genre. Each film is student-directed, consisting of a small cast, simple set, and limited props. The one-act plays are directed by Richard Wallace, the new co-director of wwudrama, and the original dance is choreographed by Aisling Krueger.
The festival will have multiple showings: Thursdays, May 18 and 25, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, May 20, at 9 p.m.; and Sunday, May 21, at 2 p.m.
In celebration of the 50-year anniversary of the first student-directed festival at the university, all tickets are only $5. Tickets are available at wallawalla.edu/drama.
For the first time, the festival will take place on the Donnie Rigby Stage, also known as the black box theater, in the Canaday Technology Center. The Center is located at 306 SW 4th St.
