First Year Showcase: “The Human Touch”

presented by Pepperdine Theatre Department

Friday, September 18, 2020 • 7:30 PM & Saturday, September 19, 2020 • 2 PM

directed by Bradley Griffin

Given the unusual nature of the fall 2020 semester, the Theatre Program faculty have created this showcase as a way to introduce their outstanding first-year theatre majors to the larger Pepperdine community of students, faculty, staff, friends, and patrons. According to showcase director Bradley Griffin, "the theme—'The Human Touch'—was born out of our current moment. With health and safety guidelines prohibiting us from engaging in nearly every kind of touch from shaking hands to handing over a credit card, or hugging a friend, or even kissing our grandparents on the cheek, we wanted to use this showcase to highlight monologues that remind us of the power of human connection." 

The showcase will feature a series of monologues drawn from a wide variety of plays that allow the first-year theatre majors to unite around a common theme while working in an online, solo performance environment.
