Stage Fright is a student-run drama program. The program is having a fundraising to fund for their future workshops and student run shows such as “DIRECTions,” an upcoming 10-minute play festival written, directed and performed by members of Stage Fright. The bake sale is going to be held on Thursday, Nov. 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
President of Stage Fright and Drama Major Jennifer Weisner said that the bake sale will be the club’s first and she hopes to hold it every quarter. Aside from workshops and student-run shows, the fund will also be used to pay a percentage of theater tickets in the Seattle area for Stage Fright members to get a discounted price.
Elizabeth Craswell, Stage Fright secretary said, “The money we raise will also help us fund club outings to see shows in our community performed professionally and sending 30 students to the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival in Sacramento, Calif. this February.”
According to Craswell, this year’s DIRECTions is going to feature seven current student and alumni. The performances are on the first, second and third of December. Tickets are $5 at the door. Recently, Craswell co-stage managed the drama department show Steven Dietz’s “Still Life With Iris,” a children’s play set in the magical land of Nocturno. Craswell added that Stage Fright is also preparing for a performance in spring of “The Last Days of Judas Escariot.” The performance will be student directed.
So come and stop by to support our student drama program Stage Fright on their bake sale, Nov. 29 to raise money to fund for their future performances which you too can enjoy.
