Fall ’15 Theater Season to Feature Four Productions
With the end of every semester come finals, stress and theater. And while the former two are still a week away, theater season begins Wednesday, Dec. 9.
In the span of seven days students will show four plays at the Dr. Carl Djerassi Theater Hall. Two of them are a part of Nedyalko Delchev’s theater classes, while the rest are independent student projects.
The season will start with two consecutive performances of “The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?” Directed by Gabriela Georgieva, it tells the story of a family that crumbles after the father falls in love with a goat.
“The play is very intense, there will be a lot of drama, but it will have its funny moments as well,” Georgieva said. “I think people will enjoy it, not only because of the outstanding script, but because of the wonderful cast that will be performing.”
Fourth-year student Denitsa Pashova has worked on two projects this semester. Vaclav Havel’s “Leaving,” which she directed with Alexandr Soloviov, will premiere on Saturday with a cast of 17 people.
“It is really difficult to manage and organize 17 people,” Pashova said. “I don’t know what to expect as an end result but I am sure that the audience will have fun and be entertained.”
Pashova also assisted Delchev on “An Immaculate Misconception,” a drama by Dr. Carl Djerassi. The cast performed a short preview of their production after the naming ceremony for the Djerassi Theater. The full play will be performed in February 2016.
The two Beginning Acting classes will star in Nikolai Gogol’s “Inspector General” and Brian Friel’s “Philadelphia, Here I Come!” The former is on Friday and Sunday, while “Philadelphia” will end the season with two performances on Monday and Tuesday.
