New World seniors put their plays on

Klodike_3To graduate from the New World School of the Arts' college theater program, seniors need to research, write, produce and perform in a 20- to 30-minute solo show.

Sixteen of those shows will be presented, in four programs, on Dec. 5-6 and Dec. 12-13 at the Tower Theater, 1508 SW Eighth St., Miami.  Each program will have get two performances: Program A is at 5 p.m. Dec. 5, 8 p.m Dec. 6; Program B is 8 p.m. Dec. 5, 5 p.m. Dec. 6; Program C is 5 p.m. Dec. 12, 8 p.m. Dec. 13; and Program D Baby_2 is 8 p.m. Dec. 12, 5 p.m. Dec. 13.  Most terrific of all is that you get to see all that creativity and up-and-coming talent for free.

Among this year's plays are Bethany Pollock's The Adventures of Klondike Kate and Meredith Bartmon's And Baby Makes Two (both pictured), Ashley Olberding's For As Long As We Both..., Betsy Graver's Mind, Body and Susan, Elyse Fischer's Piece of My Heart and Max Danesh's My Friend Jim.  Among the eclectic famous folk referenced in the shows are Eva Braun, Jim Hensen and Janice Joplin.
