Gonzaga festival of one act plays kicks off tonight

By Brian Koefoot—

The Gonzaga Festival of One Act Plays will take place tonight and tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. in the Sheehey Theater. The plays will be acts directed by Gonzaga students and is student run. There will be six one act plays, three each night for two nights. The directors for the shows include, Matthew Shumaker, Chris Cullen, Alex Limarzi, Lorenzo Limarzi, Tim Lis, and Luke Cousins. Lorenzo Limarzi, senior director, had this to say on the process to make a play,

“First thing is you have to tell Mr. Scott that you want to write [a play]. A week after that  you come up with a concept of what you want it to be about. And then we had weekly check ins to see how much progress we had made. From about start to finish, the project should take about two months,” Limarzi said.

Mr. Conor Scott, economics teacher, approves the plays and supervises the process of making a play. He commented on the event happening tonight.

“It’s a special occasion for students to have a full creative expression over a story they want to tell. It’s the best event Gonzaga puts on,” Mr. Scott said.

 Although Mr. Scott and Mr. Andrew Bevliacqua, English teacher, supervise, the process is student run; it takes many months to perfect the script. Students express their creativity and love for theater in these one- act plays.
