Kent State University’s School of Theatre and Dance presents its annual Student Theatre Festival, Friday, April 11, to Sunday, April 13, in the Erdmann-Zucchero Theatre, Center for the Performing Arts on 1325 Theatre Drive on the Kent Campus. This year’s Student Theatre Festival features productions of Christopher Marlowe’s Dr. Faustus and Christopher Durang’s Beyond Therapy. Performances of Dr. Faustus are Friday, April 11, and Sunday, April 13, at 7 p.m. Performances of Beyond Therapy are Saturday, April 12, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, April 13, at 2 p.m. Admission to the Student Theatre Festival is free, and no tickets are required. Seats are limited.
The productions staged during the Student Theatre Festival are completely student directed, designed and produced.
Dr. Faustus, directed by student Tim Welsh, was published in the early 17th century and depicts the story of a German scholar who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for magical powers.
Beyond Therapy, directed by student Matthew J. Wheeler, is a farcical comedy about two New Yorkers seeking love through the help of their psychiatrists. Discussing his production of Beyond Therapy, Wheeler hopes the audience “enjoys the time [they] have spent…on [the show’s] journey of fun and laughter.”
