Directing Class Produces One-Act Plays

DEC. 8, 2008—The Directing II class at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls will present two nights of one-act plays 7 p.m. Dec. 9-10 in the Sanford Syse Theatre in the Kleinpell Arts Building. The shows are free and open to the public.

Students who have previously taken the class Directing I are offered the chance to take Directing II. However, these directors take it to a whole new level. Within the course, the students are expected to work with their cast and write their own script. This year, the class is taught by Professor Meg Swanson.

“The class has put a lot of work into their shows,” said Swanson. “It’s a great experience for both director and audience and it’s a chance to see what your fellow students have created.”

Presented on both nights in order: “What If,” directed by David Frank, a senior mathematics major from Deer Park; “Sherlock Holmes and the Identity Incidences,” directed by Naomi Vogel, a senior theatre arts major from River Falls; “End of the Rope,” directed by Mark Bergen, a senior theatre arts major from Shakopee, Minn.; “Outside the Box,” directed by Joshua Woodward, a senior journalism major from Cottage Grove, Minn., and “Behind the Mask,” directed by Krissie Weckman, a senior theatre arts major from Shakopee, Minn.

Weckman said, “It was a really rewarding process. You find out things about theatre, about directing, and about yourself.”
