August 2015 E-news

It's not even September yet, and already we have tons of events to share with you. Coming up first is a pre-screening of Becoming Mermaid, a film project conceived and created by Elizabeth Shiffler (BA 2015), Taige Kussman (BA 2015), and Evelyn Osborne (BA CineMedia 2014). The story was first conceived in Professor Scott Magelssen’s "Adaptation" class in December 2014. For each of the creators, it’s their first major project since graduating from UW. Come check out what our talented and entrepreneurial young grads are up to!

We also want to invite all alumni, students, and supporters to help us usher in fall quarter by celebrating the work of Malika Oyetimein (MFA directing student) and Julia Welch (MFA scenic design '15) after the September 29th performance of Bootycandy, part of the Intiman Theatre Festival. Malika directs and Julia did the scenic design. Use discount code UWDRAMA2015 when purchasing tickets. More details below.
