Theatre and Dance Performance Calendar
All performances are at the NDNU Theatre, 1500 Ralston Avenue in Belmont, unless otherwise noted.
February 11, 12, 13 at 7:30 p.m.
The showcase allows students to employ the skills, knowledge, and talent developed through their course of study at NDNU in a production that is fully supported by the Theatre Department faculty and staff. One of the most unique and productive facets of the NDNU Theatre program is the requirement that graduating seniors produce, direct and sometimes, design a play for public presentation as their capstone experience.
The Problem by A.R. Gurney in which a husband (Noah Boger) and his wife (Delaney Corbitt) are caught in a spiral of imaginative games in order to keep their marriage alive. Directed by Victoria Weber.
In I Didn’t Know You Could Cook a paraplegic school teacher (Juan Pascal) in his twenties gets an odd ultimatum when he discusses his sexuality with his conservative older brother (Luis Ortiz). Directed by Jay Sharma.
You Do Love Me Don’t You? College student (Lynsey Almassey) brings home her new boyfriend, a mysterious stranger (Luis Ortiz) to meet her parents (Juan Pascual) and (Emily Scouten) and younger sister (Delaney Corbitt). Directed by Joseph Hill.
Twilight Los Angles 1992
April 8 – 17
Acclaimed as “an American masterpiece” (Newsweek), TWILIGHT: LOS ANGELES, 1992 is a stunning new work of “documentary theatre” in which Anna Deavere Smith uses the verbatim words of people who experienced the Los Angeles riots to expose and explore the devastating human impact of that event. From nine months of interviews with more than two hundred people, Smith has chosen the voices that best reflect the diversity and tension of a city in turmoil.
