MARLBORO, VT - Marlboro College senior Heather Carter will present an adaptation of the one-act play, "Just Play," at 8 p.m. April 12 and 13 in the Whittemore Theater on campus.
The play will use physicality to tell the story of a Little Guy in an absurd world. Tying together the two halves of her Plan of Concentration, "Just Play" includes Carter's final lighting design and embodiment of the physical theater methodology she has been studying.
In addition to Carter, performers include Marlboro students Morgan Eckert, Elymi Graves, and Alex Lehman.
The Plan of Concentration is the cornerstone of Marlboro's academic program. It is an in-depth, self-designed exploration of a field or fields of each student's choosing. The Plan culminates in a major independent project involving research, one-to-one study with faculty in tutorials and a three-hour oral examination with Marlboro faculty and an outside examiner who is an expert in the student¹s field.
Founded in 1946, Marlboro College offers undergraduate education in the liberal arts and, since 1997, graduate study focused in Internet technologies. Its 300 undergraduate students enjoy a 7:1 student-faculty ratio, a voice in governing the community, and individualized courses of study on a 350-acre campus in the hills of southern Vermont.
The Whittemore Theater is fully accessible and admission is free. For more information, call (802) 257-4333 or visit the college online at http://www.marlboro.edu.
