[Theaterfacultystaff] Ticket Reservations for the featured plays in the Playwrights' Festival

Romeo and Juliet is already designed for the Forum, so we can’t move the space for next year’s playfest. Even though we’re producing them as simply as possible, producing 3 plays is really taxing to the PD&T area, stage management and directing. We have to stay within the calendar format as well because pushing it earlier in the calendar to accommodate more performances would mean teching Playfest and Romeo and Juliet on top of each other, which is not a good idea. The best I can offer at the moment is that we look at creating more seating in the Baker the next time around.

All the best,

Is it too late to reconsider the performance space for the featured plays during next year’s playwrights festival? Producing three third-year plays instead of two means fewer performances for each play. This combined with the loss of overflow seating in the Forum appears to have created an audience numbers problem. Unfortunately, I don’t know if there is anything else we can do to address it for this year, but I hope we can get ahead of it for next.

All best,

Hello Again,

Because the featured plays in the Playwrights' Festival will be shown on the Baker Stage, seating is VERY limited. I have put aside tickets for each performance of the featured plays but already Philana's play has sold out and I have actors, directors and playwrights asking me for tickets for their families to see that show. I assume a similar situation will occur for the other two shows as well.  Let me know as soon as you can which performances you will be attending so I can make sure seats will be available. The performances with the mentors of course will be the most popular to see.

The Defiance of Dandelions by Philana Omorotionmwan:

Thursday 4/19 @ 8pm

Saturday 4/21 @ 8pm

Friday 4/27 @ 8pm (Performance with Mentors)

La Mujer Barbuda by Cristina Luzarraga:

Friday 4/20 @ 8pm

Wednesday 4/25 @ 8pm

Saturday 4/28 @ 8pm (Performance with Mentors)

Vessel by Nat Smith:

Saturday 4/21 @ 2pm

Thursday 4/26 @ 8pm (Performance with Mentors)

Saturday 4/28 @ 2pm

Thank you,
