UNO Theatre presents Crossing the Street: A Festival of Many Voices, our first production of 2022. In America, we “Cross the Street” to avoid difficult dialogues, but we also cross to engage them. What adventure could be bigger than sharing what we experience, or examining what we don't know?
A unique student-directed performance project, Crossing the Street is a festival of short plays, poetry, and art designed to give opportunities to performers across a range of ethnicities, ages, and the gender spectrum.
Live performances in the Weber Fine Arts Theatre.
