Marcia Légère Student Play Festival

  • th webBanner MarciaLegerePlayfest 16 0162

Student talent and the art of live theatrical performance are celebrated during this one-act play festival. Thanks to Marcia Légère, once a UW-Madison student playwright and later a successful theater professional, students involved in all aspects of the dramatic arts present their talents. Légère submitted her work to the Wisconsin Playwrights Contest and ultimately won the contest, resulting in her work being performed at the Wisconsin Union Theater in 1945. Thanks to a generous contribution more than 20 years ago for this free festival, Légère's support of student work and passion for performance carries on. 

The 26th Annual Marcia Légère Student Play Festival includes:

Time Management by Sachal Ali, directed by Wesley Korpela
Worse Things by Sabrina Ross, directed by Becca Haven and Kerry Billings
Tolkien Causes Cancer by Emma Allmann, directed by Cassie Charleston
Sonnets 1-39 by Rachel Ochsenschlager and Alexandra Pleasant, directed by Ethan Schmidt
Date With Death by Kerry Billings, directed by Yuewen Lin
