Upcoming Theater Event: MacPlayers Winter Festival

By Maya A. Weisinger

This Saturday MacPlayers, the resident student theatre troupe will be performing their winter theatre festival, There’s No Business Like Snow Business. The series of five plays is completely student directed, produced, and performed. Student-written pieces include The Last Supper by Stephen Straub, Blanketgate by Rob Gelberg, and The Jellyfish Project conceived by Hannah Letchinger and developed by her cast. The topics range from dramas about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to comedies about politicians with security blankets. MacPlayeres is led by Nora Kassner, Jon Dahl, and Rob Gelberg. The collective holds the goal of making an outlet for students interested in theatre to perform in student directed-plays, to develop their own writing, and to contribute to the vibrant Twin Cities theatre scene at large.
