Newman University Theatre Department to present MultiPLAYcity

The Newman University Theatre Department will present "MultiPLAYcity:" a festival of student-directed one act plays April 10 - April 12 in the Jabara Flexible Theatre, located inside of the De Mattias Fine Arts Center.

Tickets to the plays are purchased as a pass that allows the bearer into any and all of the plays. Tickets are $10 for general admission; $8 for faculty, staff, seniors and military; $5 for non-Newman students and free to Newman students with ID.

Six Newman students are directing the one-act performances.

"As an actor, there are a lot of things in the process you take for granted," sophomore Justin Ralph said. "But as the director, you act as the ship's captain. You're responsible if it sinks or if it sails. I have nothing but a new respect for every director I've ever worked for. I hope people come see the one acts since all the student-directors involved have worked very hard putting together a production, which is no simple task."
