In addition to our mainstage productions, UMass Theater proudly invites community members to investigate Cabaret 204, a new (free!) series of student-produced work. Produced on Studio 204, our low-tech performance space, the series is a venue for plays and performance art conceived, mounted and produced by students. Works include original scripts and adaptations by students, collections of short plays or scenes, cross-genre experimentation and explorations of theater's new directions. Come get a glimpse of what the new generation of theater artists are up to.
All performances, unless noted, will be held in Studio 204, Fine Arts Center, and are free and open to the public. Shows are open to the public but seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Presented in Studio 204:
Emerging Adults is an original comedy in one act about life after college, which includes but is not limited to: Law & Order SVU marathons, drinking heavily and getting a "j-o-b." Written by a soon to be graduating senior, Allie Connell, this post-apocalyptic piece follows a day in the life of three twentysomethings roommates trying to prove to the world that they are fully functioning adults. Performances are in FAC 204, April 3rd, 4th and 5th starting at 7pm. The run time is approximately one hour.
