Student directors take the reins in a series of stage plays in the Department of Theatre Arts’ annual TheatreFest event. The mini-festival opens tonight and runs through the weekend in the Studio Theatre on the UT Arlington campus.
The performance line-up for this year’s event includes three comic plays: Neil Simon’s Visitor from Forest Hills (directed by Theatre Arts senior Nastasia Ingersoll); Steve Martin’s WASP (directed by Theatre Arts senior Wesley Farnsworth); and original production, Two Guys, One Vault, written and directed by Theatre Arts senior Dan Hinckley.
TheatreFest is the final production of the department’s 2011-2012 season. Due to content and language, the festival is recommended for an adult audience.
Performances are slated for 8 p.m. tonight, Friday and Saturday, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 for general admission, and $7 for senior citizens, students with ID, and UT Arlington faculty and staff.
