Wichita State University Theatre’s feature film, “Popcorn Movie,” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. April 29-30 at the Welsbacher Theatre. Admission is $10. The show was written by Acting for Digital Arts at WSU theatre professor and program Bret Jones.

“Popcorn Movie” is a comedy and drama about a senior filmmaking student who desperately needs to complete her final project so she can graduate. The production is a feature film and is approximately one hour long.

WSU Theatre has been making a film project as part of its annual season for the past few years. The film’s cast includes WSU Theatre students Katy Reko, Carson Ediger, Emily Redfield, Zachary Richardson, Molly Strickler, and Hagan Simmons.

“The training for the actors working in front of the camera is a valued part of our performers’ training,” Jones said. “It’s been nice as recently WSU Theatre has had several of its film projects accepted and shown in film festivals around the country,” said Jones.”

Students cast in the film project learn what is required to act on camera, what the expectations are on a set and other aspects of performing in a film. The training complements the students’ work in theatrical productions, as well as audio work, which the students are exposed to while participating in the theatre program at WSU.
