The performing arts are alive and well on the Centenary College campus in the heart of Shreveport. In fact, the Centenary Theatre Program is launching their own 2-day theatre festival this year!

This November, the school will host the One Act Festival inside the legendary Marjorie Lyons Playhouse. Each night of the festival will feature multiple performances.

The One Act Festival will be Thursday November 9th, and Friday November 10th. Performances will begin each night at 7:30pm, and will feature a presentation of three plays both nights.

The Centenary Theatre Program's One Act Festival will highlight student talent, including six different directors and six different casts over the six performances. Associate Professor of Theatre, and Chair of the Theatre Department at Centenary, Logan Sledge says:

"The trick has been making sure the core goals of the directing project remain in place, and that adding the technical elements for a main stage production doesn’t detract from those core goals. Our student directors are showing that they are up for the task and we can’t wait to present these one-acts to the community.”

The One Act Festival performances will include the following showcase performances:

Night 1 – Thursday, November 9

Butterfly Kisses by Ashley Nader, directed by Kaeleigh Graham
This Property is Condemned by Tennessee Williams, directed by Abbie Phelan
Horse Girls by Jenny Rachel Weiner, directed by Emma Greer
Night 2 – Friday, November 10

A Game by Dennis E. Noble, directed by Hailey Chiasson
Letters For Adelaide by Grace Everett, directed by Za Brown
Anniversary by Rachel Bonds, directed by Josie Hodges

Tickets for the One-Act Festival are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors/military members, and $5 for students with ID. Tickets are free for Centenary students, faculty, and staff with ID. Visit to purchase tickets.
