Santa Fe College is hosting “IN Ten,” its 2nd Annual 10-Minute Play Festival, April 15-17. The program consists of six 10-minute plays that offer a little something for everyone and plenty of variety for all. The pieces vary from comedic to allegorical to drama.
“They are just as varied as our students,” says Professor Terry Klenk, festival coordinator.
Some also contain material for mature audiences; viewer discretion is advised. The six plays are new works chosen by a committee of students and professors, under the auspices of Theatre Santa Fe.
‘They are new voices,” says Klenk. “They are a raw burst of energy and talent.”
In “The Ballad of Off-Campus Living,” Alan Medrano offers a comedy about mismatched college roommates. “Device” is Devon Menendez’s cold war drama about the invention of a device that could change the world. Zachary Wozniak delivers “Abbo and Costellot,” about two urban knuckleheads done in the manner of “Who’s on First?” by Abbot and Costello.
The pieces are in short play format. Several of the works contain more than one scene. Casts vary from two to four actors. Set design and costumes are part of the performance.
The performances start at 8 p.m. each night in the Building E Auditorium on the Northwest campus. Shows are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Professor Terry Klenk at 352-395-5092.
