Seniors in the BFA Performance class of 2018 had their senior project approvals approved yesterday at the Performance Faculty meeting. Wayne E. Robinson, Jr., head of performance, announced the decisions in their Acting VII class today.
Before graduating, they must write, direct, and perform in a 15-minute one person show based on a real person.
Projects are performed in April, but the process begins months in advance so they have time to research and write their scripts.
Each student is assigned a faculty advisor to mentor them through the process, but the project is ultimately their own.
This year’s group of students submitted proposals on a wide spectrum of subjects:
|Matthew Alexander||John F. Kennedy||Rebecca Covey|
|Robert Ayala||Ted Bundy||Danny Mitan|
|Erynn Chapman||Jane Austin||Lesley-Ann Timlick|
|Patricia Contreras||Joan of Arc||Michael Yawney|
|Ruki Etti||Rachel Dolezal||Rebecca Covey|
|Paula Macchi||Carrie Fisher||Phillip M. Church|
|Emma Merritt||Stevie Nicks||Lesley-Ann Timlick|
|Leonard J. Moore, II||Will Smith||Phillip M. Church|
|Nora Pantoja||Elizabeth Bathory||Ivan R. Lopez|
