“The connections you can make in Boston, as well as the opportunities in the surrounding areas here, are second to none in the media industry. Being at Curry, there are so many different ways to get your foot in the door early, at places like NESN, The Boston Globe and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and Revolution.”

Annual New Plays Festival Features Student-written One Act Plays
March 8, 2011
Curry College held its Fifth Annual New Plays Festival in March 2011, featuring four original, student-written, one-act plays. The New Plays Festival started in 2006 after the arrival of the Communication Department's professor Gail Phaneuf. Phaneuf serves as Curry Theatre's in-house playwright and teaches a scriptwriting class each semester. At the conclusion of each semester, four to six of the pieces are chosen to be performed in the New Plays Festival.
This semester, Curry Theatre was proud to showcase four pieces of 5 to 10 minutes in length. Curry alumna Cate Buckley's comedy "Sex and Education," starts out as a talk about the 'birds and the bees' and turns into a talk about frogs. Edwin Del Cruz's comedy "Where for Art Thou Juliet," begins as a nice family visit to the theater which goes horribly wrong when a family can't keep quiet. Mark Alexander's drama "Deathbed" is about a boy in a coma who learns what life would be like without him. Finally, Justin Selig's drama "Family Portrait" paints a picture of a family that isn't quite perfect.
