EUGENE, Ore. – The Student Productions Association of Lane Community College presents the 2020 “Winter Shorts,” six new works for the theatre written by Lane theatre students.
Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, Feb. 6, 7, 8, and 13, 14, 15 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sundays, Feb. 9 and 16 at 2 p.m.; all in the Blue Door Theatre, Building 6, LCC main campus, 4000 E. 30th Ave., Eugene.
“Winter Shorts” offers Lane theatre students the opportunity to take full control of the production process, beginning from the conception of a play to closing weekend. The plays are a mix of comedy and drama that will give audiences a lot to think about. The shows are appropriate for ages 12 and up.
SPA welcomes local theatre creator and former SPA member, Tara Wibrew, back to the Blue Door Theater. Eugene audiences have seen Wibrew on stage at Oregon Contemporary Theatre, where she serves as the associate producer. She will provide guidance and support to the directors, playwrights, and designers, as well as direct one of the 10-minute plays.
Playwrights include Jenna McWilliams, Laura Leader, Emma Weinkauf, Melia Scanlon, Dani Robinette, and Samuel Henthorne. The plays will be directed by Dani Robinette, Jessica Ruth Baker, Tara Wibrew, Mike Schwab, and Melia Scanlon. Eric Bramen will serve as the lead playwright and director for a new devised work, created collaboratively with three actors.
Tickets are free and available at the door. Donations go towards theatre scholarships.
