THEATER | MuCCC College Theater Festival 

College students who want to develop their talents for directing, acting, and writing have a strong ally in MuCCC, which is presenting its annual College Theater Festival this Saturday, May 9. (It's thoughtfully scheduled after most finals.) Local college students and teachers provide the short one-act plays, and the theater professionals at MuCCC (not to mention real live audiences) provide helpful feedback after the performances.

This year's plays include:

Monroe Community College: "Braking and Entering" by Emma Milligan, directed by Justin Borak; "Commensalism, Etc." by Michael Burkhardt, directed by Maria Brandt.

SUNY Brockport: "Date with Destiny" by Jeffery Neuman; "Reston" by L. Robert Westeen, directed by Sallie Koenig.

National Technical Institute for the Deaf (RIT): "Becoming Grandma Kat" by Keith Banks.

RIT Players: "Gravid Waters," which is split into two parts as "The Magic School Bus" by Tom Weekes, and "Complications" by Emily Scialabba, directed by Conor McKaig.

Performances will be interpreted in ASL. The plays are appropriate for adult audiences. For more performance details visit MuCCC College Theater Festival will take place Saturday, May 9, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. $8 for students with ID, $5 in advance; general admission is $12, and $8 in advance.
