Theatre and Dance Calendar


March
Saturday, March 6th
2:00pm
  • Time: 2:00pm
Turn off the ghost light, the show must go on! This March, we offer streaming performances of four one-acts plays directed, acted, and designed by our amazing WKU Theatre & Dance students. Join us for an evening filled with teenage angst, self-reflection, grief, love, and murder. Recommended for mature audiences.
Lighting Martha by by Carolyn Gage (Directed by Baylee Hayes)
What happens when your love dies? Does the light go out of the world? Lighting Martha shows us how one woman deals with the death of her secret lover. Will she be able to accept the loss, or will she will be forever haunted by what once was?
The Most Massive Woman Wins by Madeleine George (Directed by Audrey Plescia)
Striking, hilarious, and brazenly eye-opening, this show features four distinct women brought together at a liposuction clinic. Through childhood memories, personal narratives, and children’s rhymes, these women share the reality behind unrealistic expectations for women’s bodies, minds, and spirits.
Drugs Are Bad by Jonathan Rand (Directed by Rachael Prewitt)
Have you ever wondered what life would be like with parents who encourage drug-taking and sex-having? Find out in this parody of those ever-so-dramatic Afterschool Specials, as young Brad rebels by winning scholarships and drinking milk.
Trifles by Susan Glaspell (Directed by Hope Mohon)
Murder is no trifling matter when this small Iowa town is shocked by the death of local farmer John Wright. Will our male investigators see beyond their own prejudices to discover the truth? Or will Mrs. Wright’s secrets remain hidden?

Are you wondering if a dance major or minor may be for you? Dance Day is an opportunity each semester for prospective students to sample the WKU Dance Program and see what it's all about. Due to the COVID-19 concerns, we have elected to shift the format of Dance Day for spring 2021. The NDEO Student Chapter will host a virtual Dance Day on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at 10:00-11:00 a.m. central time via Zoom. The WKU Dance Program will host another virtual Dance Day on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 10:00-11:00 a.m. central time via Zoom. These virtual events will provide a single dance class focused on a specific dance genre taught by WKU dance faculty or selected dance majors followed by a Q&A session with WKU dance faculty/current dance majors. To register for any or all of the virtual Dance Days, complete the online Dance Day Registration Form: https://www.wku.edu/theatre-and-dance/dance-day.php
