It’s a tradition at William Woods University that theatre majors put on one final show before they graduate. The presentation celebrates the upcoming graduates’ time spent on the WWU stage.
Seniors Jared M. Krichevsky, Ryan H. Paul and Jamie K. Heisler will showcase their talents and dedication to their chosen craft in their Senior Projects presentation. The show will be at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 4 and 5, in Dulany Auditorium.
“We get our chance to steal the spotlight. Thirty minutes in the limelight, our rules, our way,” Heisler said.
Krichevsky of Culver City, Calif., will perform a series of comedic “Saturday Night Live” skits perfect for the television generation. From soap operas to presidential fireside chats, he hopes to have the audience rolling in the aisles.
Paul of Olathe, Kan., will perform a one-man show of the classic, chilling horror stories, “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Cask of Amontillado,” both by Edgar Allen Poe.
Heisler of Portland, Ore., wrote, directed, and stars in a sticky modern day love story. “The Object of My Confection” is a tragic tale of two star crossed lovers, one of which just happens to be a giant grape jelly donut.
“I hope the audience will be licking their fingers with laughter!” Heisler commented.
Tickets to Senior Projects are $2 and will be available at the door. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross for the Tsunami Relief.
