The lineup of theater productions for the rest of the year has been announced. 

Student Experimental Theater performances will be Feb. 28 to March 2 and the spring musical will be “Mamma Mia.”

Eleven short productions comprise this year’s SET show. 

SET performances are curated, directed and designed by students, and seven pieces were written by students. 

The shows were chosen to showcase the talents of the actors and the directors.

“We try to create a good variety of productions,” Nicholas Merchant, SET board member, said. “It’s important to the board that the short plays have a diverse variety of emotions to engage the audience.”

The actors and crew won’t have much of a break because work on the spring production of “Mamma Mia” will begin immediately after. 

According to theater teacher Liucija Ambrosini, she chooses productions that allow students across the production to learn from the show, whether acting, directing or designing costumes.

Auditions will take place March 5-8 and the production will take place May 16-18.

Theater auditions are open to all students, regardless of past theater experience.
