The Festival has been popular with audiences for over a decade, but this spring’s edition demonstrates the continuing enthusiasm of students who create it.

“This year’s Festival is a little unusual for the number of students who are back as writers, directors, actors or as part of the production for the third or fourth year, or more,” said coordinator and dramatic writing teacher Margaret Thomas Kelso, who began the Festival in 1998. “All that experience adds to the quality of these plays.”

For example, producer and graduate student Alex Gradine has participated in five festivals. Playwright Mackenzie Cox has written, directed or acted for four. This is at least the third Festival for at least a dozen of this year’s participants.
