Three theatre capstone projects by Clayton State senior theatre majors will be on display this week in the Clayton State Theatre, room 132 of the University’s Arts & Sciences Building. All performances are free and open to the public.
On Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 6:30 p.m., senior theatre major Brian Bryant’s capstone project will be a stage reading of a play he has written. Bryant's piece is about a young man rising to become a very successful attorney. The choices he made on his way up are the very ones that could become his downfall. Bryant’s play is so new, he doesn't have a working title yet.
On Thursday, Dec. 6, at 7:30 p.m., senior theatre major LaDonna Williams’ capstone will be a production of her piece called "Killing Field's Child." In an immigration office, a young Cambodian mother prays to keep her family together.
Anissa Matlock’s capstone project, a 30-minute romantic comedy film entitled “Love Potion,” will be screened at 8:30 p.m., on Thursday, Dec. 6, following William’s production.
“Love Potion” features several Clayton State students, says writer/director Matlock, “It’s about a man, unlucky in love, who decides to purchase a love potion to win the affections of a co-worker. He soon learns that the potion's reach extended beyond what he intended.”
Clayton State Theatre Director Shontelle Thrash invites all Clayton State students, faculty, staff and the public to come see these dreams made real.
