Next week, on Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30, the Department of Communication Studies wraps its sizzling Season 180° with MOSAIC—our rousing annual festival, created to feature original 10-minute, one-act scripts written by students and performed by student actors as a staged reading. We hope you’ll join us in support of our student playwrights and their imaginative, thoughtful, and frequently humorous work! Performances run an hour each night beginning at 7 PM in the Cierpke Choral Hall of the Jackson Center for Music and Worship Arts on campus at Trevecca Nazarene University! (Please note: There is no performance on Thursday, April 28.)
