POWER LINES plays:

For the Dead and Lonely by Hollis LeGate
Directed by Euan Ashley

For the Dad and Lonely by Hollis LeGate

Natalie discovers she’s dead, and Death is busy trying to shuffle her and other souls out of Limbo.  But Death has his own issues, and turns out to be a lot more complicated that Natalie would have imagined.  A tender, funny, and thoughtful journey into finding one’s final destination.

Wish in one Hand by Jarrett Galante
Directed by Leila Brown

Wish in one Hand by Jarrett Galante

Friendship isn’t what it used to be for Dirk, a weed dealer, and Chomp, his best client. A farce about zombies, tacos, and something very strange lying under the rock in the backyard.

Timelapse is a project that embodies a coming of age story through movement. Follow the dancers along this compilation of four dances that illustrate different phases of life from adolescence to young adult. Enjoy a live dance show while reflecting on your own coming of age story, and witness the story telling of mine.

Red is a psychological thriller that features themes of grief, loss, life, death, mental health, and the relationships between mothers, daughters and sisters. Red is also an exploration of the human mind and its relationship to supernatural entities.

Lilia Griffin
"I Love You"

 

Poster for Lilia Griffin's Senior Project

I love you. That is a statement of meaning. Loving people has its highs and lows. Whether they pass earlier than you wanted or you are walking into a new chapter in your life together. I want to expose the grief and guilt that comes when celebrating in times of mourning and the light that family can create in those times. I also want to show the amount of joy you are able to have in those moments. I really want to express the idea of being confused and overwhelmed in contrast to the clarity of "I Love You”.

Aissa Simbulan & Noah Hewitt
"A Peek Behind the Curtain"

Aissa Simbulan & Noah Hewitt Senior Project poster

What do theatre technicians do? A Peek Behind the Curtain is a technical theatre showcase/ performance that highlights the unseen work backstage and before the show begins. It will show and discuss technician’s involvement from concept to post-show duties in an over-exaggerated and performative manner.
CONTENT WARNING: Flashing lights and loud sounds will be used during this performance.
