Shorts XVI takes the stage this week 

November 14, 2012

PLAINVIEW – The theatre department at Wayland Baptist University will present Shorts XVI: Sweet 16 this week in the Black Box theatre. Shorts will run at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday.

This is the sixteenth year that Shorts has been presented at Wayland. The performance consists of short dramatic pieces generally performed and directed by WBU students. This year, however, Director of Theatre Dr. Marti Runnels has added a twist. Former Wayland students and area high school theatre directors will direct the collection of short pieces that will range from dramatic to comedic, and include a musical. Also, birthday cupcakes will be offered to those in attendance.

Tickets cost $8 and are available online at, click on the purchase theatre tickets link under the Wayland News tab. Or call the theatre office at 806-291-1060
