One Night Only! THEATRE SLAM! Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. at Olin Theatre. W&J Student Theatre Company and Alpha Psi Omega Theatre Honorary present THEATRE SLAM – an entirely student-driven event! What do you get when you lock student directors, writers and actors in the theatre overnight? COMBUSTION! EXPLOSION! (or as the poets say) SLAM! Join us for the annual experiment in “dangerous” theatre. Within the space of 24 hours, our students will create and stage an evening of theatre. There is no predicting the end-results. Witness the dramatic product of their fertile, but sleep-deprived minds. It's live theatre – anything can happen. Warning-possible adult themes/language.
