FIU Theatre Seniors make their Senior Performance Project presentations April 4 – 5 and 11 – 12.
The Senior Performance Projects have been designed to prompt current seniors to come together and act as a theatre company. Students select plays about figures they find a connection to and develop, direct and perform same. The pieces range in feel from comedic to dramatic, realistic to fantastical. For some, the overall experience often bridges the gap between being a student actor and becoming a professional actor. Previous senior projects have been performed regionally, in New York, and even as far as London!
Don’t miss your chance to catch these performances! All performances are in DM 150 at 8:00PM, donations welcome.
