I didn't realize this until yesterday, but apparently, this "Winter Festival" that Dani had to be back at school 2 weeks early for is a Big Friggin' Deal!
I googled it this morning. The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival takes place in 8 regions around our great country during January and February. Dani's school, Indiana University of Pennsylvania was chosen for one of the regions. The point of the festival is to share ideas, hold seminars and workshops for schools to improve their theater programs. They also showcase performances from regional colleges. In October, Dani was in a production of a student written play called The Embalmer. This one act play was chosen to be performed along with plays from other colleges in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Her play will only have one performance, on Friday, January 15. I'd love to be in the audience to see this play again. I'd also like to be there to hear what people think about it, since I've seen it before and know what to expect. It's very well-written and directed. And it's very disturbing! When we saw it, back in October, it was one of four plays being performed each night. The Embalmer was the last one, and it was definitely the one everyone was talking about as they left the theater!
So, if you think of it on Friday, send good vibes to Indiana, PA and wish Dani and her cast mates good luck!
Break a leg, Bratface!!!
