Students on Stage

Students ran the stage during N.E.W. (short for New and Evolving Work), a celebration of students' creative work April 15-19.  The festival, put on by the Department of Theatre, gave students the chance to write, direct, act and design new pieces for live audiences.

The weeklong event featured

  • A production directed by, starring and designed by students
  • Readings of two new plays written by graduating seniors
  • Readings of prose and poetry by creative writing students
  • An exhibit of art, photography and digital media by DU students

Watch a scene from Famed Film Director Mr. Miles Finneas Wallace's Last Movie, written by David Graham, a senior majoring in theatre. The play tells the story of a director shooting his latest sci-fi epic masterpiece, set in the distant future of 1999, but failing to notice one Soviet element after another creeping into his movie.

This scene stars undergraduates Catherine Chengery, Patricia Galvez, Weston Meredith, Alex Ngo and Dylan Schmeyer.
