Information about the two shows:

Hookman

Driven for attention, millennial and UConn Freshman, Lexi, finds that it may not be the best thing as serial killer, Hookman, has his eyes on her.

Really Really

Really Really  is a contemporary dark comedy that pushes the edges and embraces the hard reality of today’s Millennial Generation as they fight to make it on their own. At an elite university, when the party of the year results in the regret of a lifetime, one person will stop at nothing to salvage a future that is suddenly slipping away.
In this quick-witted and gripping comic tragedy about “Generation Me”, it’s every man and every woman for themselves.

Grace – Daisy Barajas

This production is a part of the 2X4 BASH program, which is geared towards people between the ages of 18-29. This program allows for people within this age to take charge and take responsibility for their respective productions that they are assigned under the mentorship of TWS staff and faculty.

If you ever wanted to learn more about the process of a production and take part of it, your opportunity is here. You can participate in a number of areas (2 minimum) in order to put a production together, whether that be costume construction, stage management, scenic, lights, sound, etc., and put that on your resume.

This program is not exclusive to people majoring in theatre arts, but to those who are genuinely interested in knowing more about the field!
