Flagler College’s Theatre Arts Department to showcase Senior Conservatory Plays

Flagler College’s Theatre Arts Department
November 18, 2016

In this fall’s Senior Conservatory Plays at Flagler College on Dec. 1, three productions challenge characters’ understanding of reality: the world around them is not what it seems.


Student Dusti Winters’ production of “My Dear Niece” follows a woman who is looking for employment, but finds herself in a precarious situation. Kayla Lindsay’s production of “Barefoot in Nightgown by Candlelight,” written by Don Nigro, centers around three school girls living in a boarding school who enter into a unique relationship of mistress, slave, and witness. And Alison Zador’s production of “Babel’s in Arms,” written by David Ives, retells the biblical story of the Tower of Babel. Two individuals are told to build a tower to God and struggle with their faith and practicality of building it.


“Babel’s in Arms” is presented by special permission of Dramatists Play Service and "Barefoot in Nightgown by Candlelight" is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Senior Conservatory is a six-credit, semester-long course in which senior Theatre Arts majors master all aspects of producing a show, including selecting a piece and obtaining rights, casting and directing, set construction, light and sound design, costuming, and publicity. This course acts as the senior capstone course for the Theatre Arts Department at Flagler College. 

The Senior Conservatory Plays will be performed at the Lewis Auditorium, 14 Granada St., Dec. 1 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 general admission, are available online at flagler.universitytickets.com and will only be available at the box office one hour prior to curtain on Dec. 1. The box office phone number is 904-826-8600.


Flagler faculty, staff and students may obtain one free ticket directly at the box office. The event qualifies as co-curricular activity for students.
