(Lincoln, NE) – Theatrix, the student-run theatre company within the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, continues its 2017 Spring season with the Women’s Week Staged Reading Festival, an event that presents plays performed, directed, and written by published and student female theatre artists. 
Theatrix produces the Women’s Week Staged Reading Festival in continuation of its season of experimental student theatre projects, as well as in celebration and observance of what it means to be a female-identifying person in this day and age.
The festival is organized and directed by sophomore theatre directing major Katie Triplett and senior performance and directing and management major Amy Almond. It will feature plays written by published female playwrights in addition to works written by students and alumna of the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film: “Lions, Tigers, and Dares” by sophomore performance major Katie Vondrak, “Gray Area” by 2016 performance alumna Katie Hoppe, and “Peas and Carrots” by freshman film and new media major Maya Linn Peirce.
