Drexel Players to Perform "Parts" at the URBN Annex
August 28, 2013
The Drexel Players are returning to the Philadelphia Fringe Festival with "Parts: A Speed-Through," an immersive theatre experience conceived, produced, written, and performed solely by Drexel students and alum. The piece is a theatrical "undressing" about the unique, beautiful, and tragic relationships young theatre artists share with each other. Performances will take place in University City in Drexel’s brand new URBN Center Annex at 3401 Filbert Street on Friday, Sept. 6 @ 8pm, Saturday, Sept 7 @ 6pm, Sunday, Sept 8 @ 2pm, Friday, Sept 13 @ 8pm, and Saturday, Sept 14 @ 6pm. This production marks the first time a Fringe show has been performed in Drexel’s brand new Black Box Theater.
Tickets are $7 and will be available at the door or through fringearts.ticketleap.com.
Parts: A Speed-Through invites its audience into the world of a fictional college theatre ensemble at a fictional university as they tech, open, close, and strike their production of the fictional stage classic, Town, by Gene Wilder. “We envisioned this piece to be a slightly skewed self-portrait of the Drexel Players,” says producer/co-director, James Haro (’13), a recent Entertainment and Arts Management graduate. The producing team also includes Drexel Players President Mike Ambler (’14), Vice-President John VanZelst (’15), and Entertainment and Arts Management major, Julie Mercik (’14).
