STUDENT SKILLS SHOWCASED IN "NEW VOICES"
OSWEGO -- A dozen SUNY Oswego students will showcase their writing and directing skills at the eighth annual "New Voices" program at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 16, and 8 p.m. Sunday, March 17, in Tyler Hall's lab theatre.
The event will feature six student-written and student-directed one-act plays touching on a variety of topics. The performances are admission-free and open the public.
"This is an important program that celebrates student writers," said Brad Korbesmeyer, director of the English writing arts program. "The readings allow feedback, which is an important forum for writing and education to the students involved."
The 10-minute plays will include "Just Dropping In" by Jeff Barg, directed by Adele Basile; "Sitcom" by Thomas Hoffman, directed by Ryan Parow; "The Truth of Fiction" by Kenneth Huss, directed by Eric Webb; "A Change of Clothes" by Kristina Russo, directed by Anastasia Meehan; "Slide Show" by Greg Shemkovitz, directed by John Smiley; and "The Greatest Metaphor Ever" by Sean Tracey, directed by Jen Caruana.
"New Voices" has been organized by the English and theatre departments at SUNY Oswego since the event's inception in 1994. It was modeled after the Actors Theatre of Louisville's 10-minute play program. A student and faculty panel determines the six winning plays out of all of the entries.
"Success over the past eight years has made the event a tradition that people look forward to every year," Korbesmeyer said.
