Students gathered last weekend for Masque and Gown’s 80th Annual One-Act Competition, which began Friday evening with three distinctly different pieces, five to 10 minutes each. Bowdoin students wrote, directed and acted in each play.
The winner of Friday’s competition advanced to a multi-college One-Act festival on Saturday, where they performed alongside winners from Colby and Bates in Bowdoin’s Kresge Auditorium.
The One-Act Festival gives students with minimal theater experience the chance to immerse themselves in the creative process of putting together an original production. Ben Rosenbloom ’14 directed “The Game,” his first show, and described the experience as a “low-pressure way into theater and a fun learning experience.” Read the full story by Julie Pinerro ’14.
