One-act plays caps collegiate careers for HC theatre majors

capstones for 2016By directing one-act plays, Hastings College theatre majors in their junior or senior year have the opportunity to demonstrate all they have learned through their courses and as part of other productions. This experience, known as a capstone, is a significant undertaking — the kind of large project from which Hastings College students benefit when they graduate and move into careers in theatre and other fields.

For 2016, the capstone one-acts will be produced on Thursday, March 10; Friday, March 11; and Saturday, March 12 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, March 13 at 2:30 p.m. All performances will be in Scott Studio Theatre (806 N. Turner Ave.) General admission tickets are $7 while seniors and students can purchase tickets for $5. Admission is free for Hastings College students, faculty and staff and for Crimson Connection members.
