Livestream theater, closures, postponements: Dec. 4
‘3’ — Virtual Play
Southern Oregon University theater student Emma Blanco will present her virtual directing thesis with the play, “3,” by Sara Jean Accuardi at 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 4-5, via Zoom. “3” is a tale of a loss of innocence, and the dark side of love and attraction. Fourteen-year-old Ellie is a good kid; it’s the worst. David, 25, is grown-up; it’s the worst. Tracy Maccarini’s got it figured out, though. She’s neither. Or both. Is it more dangerous to grow up too fast or too slowly? Tickets are free, but registration is required through Eventbrite. For tickets to the Dec. 4 performance see eventbrite.com/e/130075590593; tickets for the Dec. 5 performance can be had at eventbrite.com/e/130075243555. The day of the performance, an email with the link to the Zoom performance will be sent out. For further details, see oca.sou.edu.
