Theatre professor and guest to host “Newspaper Theater”

Visiting scholar Dr. Erika Hughes and Theatre professor Dr. Alli Metz will host “Newspaper Theatre” this Saturday. “Newspaper Theatre” is a workshop that focuses on techniques and exercises to help bring current news, social issues and historical events to life on the stage for performance.

Students will learn how news stories can be dramatized for production. The workshop will be helpful for students who are interested in devising new work, playwriting, dramaturgy, teaching, or long form improvisation.

There are 10 openings remaining for the workshop, and students who are interested can sign up at the Box Office in the Performing Arts Center.

The workshop is free, and takes place Saturday, October 13 from 2-5 pm in PAC 1506.
