Upcoming and Past Productions
The Etown Shorts Fest, held every other fall, is a chance for student productions to be performed and, most importantly, directed by students. All of our Theatre majors are required to direct one of the Shorts Fest plays. These 10-minute plays range from comedy to tragedy to romance and are integral in helping our students feel comfortable in a director role.
Essential to our budding student playwrights is the Shorts Fest, held every other year in the spring. In the E-Town New Playwrights Fest, students from our Playwriting class get the chance to hear their scripts in staged readings, which also are directed by students. All productions are in Tempest Theatre unless otherwise noted.
Still Life with Iris
March 17, 2022 7:00 PM
Tempest Theatre presents a spring 2022 production of "Still Life with Iris," a fantastical adventure which centers on a little girl's search for the simplest of things: home. Iris lives with her mom in the land of Nocturno—a magical place in which the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day. The rulers of Nocturno, the Great Goods, are determined to have the "best" of everything on their island—and therefore take Iris away from her home and bring her to Great Island to be their daughter. Opening Night is March 17, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. Additional shows will be held on March 18, 19, 24, and 25 at 7:00 p.m., as well as a 2:00 p.m. matinee on March 26, 2022. BUY TICKETS!
