Due to technical difficulties, the May 20 Film Fest @ UC Davis
program has been rescheduled for May 27 at 7 p.m. PDT, with a
Q&A and awards presentation to follow.
The festival features short films of eight minutes or less in
length, submitted by UC Davis students and recent graduates.
Submissions include a variety of genres, from animation to live
action to documentary to experimental. This year the
selection committee has also accepted submissions of original
screenplays of eight pages or less.
The UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance and Catalyst: A
Theatre Think Tank are seeking audition videos for the new
musical comedy Juliet and Romeo.
A comedic spin on Shakespeare’s classic tale, Juliet and
Romeo centers on a second rate author who finds himself in
Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and his determination to
figure out how to change the ending.
Tara Brandel, theatre and dance graduate student, will share her
reworking of classic Irish theatre (with apologies) on
Wednesday, June 6. “Go and Come” will be performed in the Della
Davidson Performance Studio in Nelson Hall at 4:30 p.m. The
presentation is free.
According to Brandel, the work in progress is a social experiment
that is post Celtic Tiger, post Celtic revival, post whatever…
The one-act features undergraduate student Rose Kim,
doctoral student Jesse Stokes, and graduate student Justin
Streichman and is devised and directed by Brandel.
