MODESTO – The MJC Theatre Department will present the New Play Fest 2013 on June 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Little Theatre of the Performing and Media Arts Center.  The New Play Festival is a staging of world premiere plays written by students in the MJC playwriting class.

The six short, one-act plays are directed by theatre students and produced by Theatre Professor Michael Lynch.  The plays include both comedies and dramas showcasing a variety of themes.  Works to be presented are:

*"Brazillians, Manscaping, Mom & Me" by Christine Allegretti.  A daughter deals with her "new mom" who decides it is time to start dating again.

*"The Robbery of the Beauty School Burnout" by Paige Jenkins (winner of this year's MJC Humanities Contest in Playwriting).  A female burglar breaks into the home of a beauty school "burnout" and faces unexpected problems.

* "Beloved" by Jennifer Stonechipher.  A young couple are planning their wedding day while another man is determined to stop it with surprising results.

* "The Rehearsal" by Christopher Wells. A director is trying to convince an actor not to continue bursting into song during a serious drama.

*"15 Minutes" by Timothy Glidewell.  A young woman goes speed dating with several men on the same night in the same restaurant.

*"Just One Man: An Action Movie/Play" by Nidal Bukhari & Tyler Kelly.  One man's quest for revenge.  A play for people who love action movies.


"All six of these plays are unique, clever and very well-written.  When looking at them, I often forget they are written and performed by students.  Very professional and exciting theatre," said Lynch

Tickets are $10 general admission and $8 for students and senior citizens and will be available at the door 90 minutes before each performance.
