CONWAY, Ark. (March 26, 2018)
— The Hendrix College Department of Theatre Arts and Dance 2018 Senior Seminar
presents The Contemporary American
Theatre Project: This Random World, a play by Steven Dietz, on Thursday,
April 19 and Friday, April 20 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, April 21 at 2 p.m. in
The Senior Seminar, a capstone
experience for seniors in the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance, calls for students
to create a theatre company and produce a play. Each year, the members of the
Seminar collaborate to form a cohesive, contemporary show to be presented to
the public in the Spring semester.
Random World deals with
themes of serendipity and happenstance. Several characters interact with people
who are somehow connected to their lives, although they may not know why and
may never discover the connection. This play can easily be connected to daily
human interaction: How many connections in life have we missed?
Performances are free and open to the public, with open
seating and no reservations required. For more information, visit www.hendrix.edu/theatrearts.

Arts and Dance Class of 2018 and their roles for This Random World are:
