The two performances will be the last of the semester.

WHAT: The BurkTech Players will present a new, original dance piece, musical theater number and devised work as part of their spring performance.

WHEN: 7:30-9 p.m. Monday (April 24) and Tuesday (April 25)

WHERE: Lab Theatre, next door to the Burkhart Center, 2902 18th St.

EVENT: The BurkTech Players ensemble has taken on playwrighting. Under the mentorship of graduate instructor William Sinclair, student Morgan Brundrett will become the first company member and playwright to produce a new full-length work in the BurkTech Players playwright program.

Though the BurkTech Players have produced new works in the past, Brundrett represents the first in a program geared at developing opportunities for playwrights within the ensemble. The themes of Brundrett's work, "You Live and You Learn," focus on friendship and growing up.

Tickets are free and can be reserved in person at the J.T. and Margaret Talkington College of Visual and Performing Arts box office or by calling (806) 742-3603.
