APRIL 22, 2005--UW-River Falls theatre students display their personally directed and produced one-act plays in the Blanche Davis Theater at 7:30 p.m., May 3-5.

Admission to view these productions is free and open to the public, but a $2 donation at the door is suggested to help fund the University Theatre organization Masquers.

Whether a student is a theatre major or a theatre lover, Masquers welcomes all students and encourages them to act on their interests in the performing arts.

During spring semester, 13 UW-RF students took the course, Directing 1, which focused on giving the students an in-depth introduction to the directing process for theatre arts. Several of the students who directed the one-act plays came from a variety of majors.

The plays being produced are all very unique. The plays range from farcical and intriguing comedies to contemporary drama and classic plays. Several members from the River Falls community also are acting in some of the plays.
