TFMS Night

Angels in America: Part I: Millennium ApproachesDuring the last week of spring semester, TFMS sponsors TFMS Night, a one-evening potpourri of performance activities that showcases student work in the performing arts and in film and media at St. Mary's College. Students enrolled in TFMS courses (e.g. acting, directing, movement and dance, documentary practices, media production) perform scenes or screen films from work crafted in class or full-length pieces (e.g. one-acts) designed to satisfy requirements of a particular class' final project. An evening of activities, however, is not limited exclusively to performance of classroom work; students simply interested in performing or in showcasing their work, independent of a classroom project, are welcome to participate.

Students interested in participating in TFMS Night must inform the department's two student representatives, who are responsible for organizing and advertising the event, of their intention to participate, the work to be performed, and the location of their performance. Requests for specialty items only for the performance of acting scenes, dance and/or movement pieces, and directing projects must be made to the technical director. Ultimately, students are responsible for the proper care and maintenance of all borrowed property, which must be returned immediately following the performance of the work.
