Waynesburg University will present “Relationships: An Evening of Short Plays about Love and Romance,” Friday, July 31, and Saturday, Aug. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center (GPAC) on the Waynesburg University campus. Admission is $5 per person, and the public is cordially invited to attend.
“The GPAC will be alive with humorous and touching plays about falling in love, proposing marriage, finding new relationships and the pitfalls that come with these scenarios,” said Edward L. Powers, director of the theater program and professor of theater at Waynesburg University.
Waynesburg University alumni, current students and community members will come together to perform the short plays. The production will include two shows, “The Kentucky Marriage Proposal” by Alice H. Houstle and “The Dancers” by Horton Foote, in addition to several two- and three- person scenes.
The selected stories will feature a honeymooning couple experiencing their first fight, a farmer’s marriage proposal to his neighbor’s daughter, two college graduates wondering if marriage is right for them, a lonely man’s attempts to rekindle a past relationship and two teenagers’ discovery of the overall unimportance of popularity.
“We're excited to have familiar faces from the community returning to our stage, but equally as excited about so many area high school students who are new to our Waynesburg University theater program.”
Tickets will be available at the door. For more information, contact Powers at 724-852-3226.
