Purple Valley Plays: A Festival of New Work for the Stage

Apr 26, 27, 28|CenterStage|7:30 PM|$3

Back for its third round—under the freshly minted title of Purple Valley Plays—this festival will present original works for the stage written, directed, designed, and performed by current Williams students. In the fall term, all works submitted will be anonymously read and selected by a committee made up of faculty, staff, and students. During the spring, each new work will be given full production support by a company of artists, who will meet to conceptualize and rehearse, transforming the CenterStage into a flexible venue for world-premiere theatricality. All Williams students are eligible to participate. Come one, come all!
