Festival Of New Plays Features Five Performances April 10-13

ALBANY — The Theatre Program of the University at Albany’s Department of Music and Theatre presents its upcoming Fresh Acts: A Festival of New Plays, now in its sixth year. 

This year’s festival is a collaboration involving more than 40 students, with five performances from April 10 through 13, at the UAlbany Performing Arts Center on the uptown University at Albany campus. The schedule includes shows on Wednesday & Thursday, April 10 & 11 at 8 p.m.; Friday, April 12 at 3 p.m. and Saturday, April 13 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. 

Fresh Acts presents readings of six one-act plays written, directed, stage managed and performed by students under the mentorship of Fresh Acts artistic director Kate Walat, associate professor and playwright-in-residence in the Theatre Program. The plays were chosen from a competitive, blind submission process. The final selections were made by Brooklyn-based playwright Amina Henry, whose own play Little Rapes will be presented in the Authors Theatre reading series in collaboration with the New York State Writers Institute on Tuesday, April 2. 

Advance tickets are $8 for the general public and $5 for students, senior citizens and UAlbany faculty-staff.  Tickets purchased on the day of the show are $13 for the general public and $10 for students, seniors and UAlbany faculty-staff.  All tickets must be purchased on-line from the UAlbany Performing Arts Center’s site at www.albany.edu/pac/tickets.  Information and assistance can be obtained by contacting the UAlbany Performing Arts Center’s main office at 518-442-3995 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
