Theatre at Barton Presents “Student Produced Works” March 26-27

WILSON, N.C. — March 1, 2021 — Theatre at Barton is pleased to present “Student Produced Works” on Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Kennedy Family Theatre. Barton College budding authors and playwrights have submitted original works for students by students.

Seating will be limited to 16 seats in the audience for each performance. All those attending must wear face masks and observe social distancing protocols.

Tickets are $10 each for adults, and $5 each for student, seniors, and military. Reservations must be made online at barton.edu/theatre. No tickets will be sold at the door.

These creative 10-minute plays, stories and poems will be fully produced on stage in the Kennedy Family Theatre, showcasing work from student authors: Sarah Maragh, Hunter Bozelle, Caroline Leegins, Luke Eason, Suman Kirti, Jordan Peartree, and Morgan Tripp. “Spoken Word” participants and actors from fall 2020 will also have the opportunity to share their voice in the spotlight once again, while other students take on back-stage roles in running crew, management, design, and other essential technical elements.

Barton College Faculty members Sherry Lee Allen, Dorothy Austin-Harrell, and Michael Dornemann will supervise presentations. Come celebrate this performance series of originality, with drama, comedy and commitment… the play’s the thing!

Please note that “An Extra Penny” has been re-scheduled for fall 2021, when local author Cindy Lu Mancini will bring her original script and score (composed by Mary Lee Taylor Kinosian) to the Kennedy Family Theatre for the next step in producing this compelling new American musical. Filled with laughter and heartfelt emotion, “An Extra Penny” crosses three generations during WW I and WWII, sharing stories of adversity, perseverance and the bonds of love, reminding us that passion breeds success in the darkest of times.
