Entirely performed and directed by May and December 2019 Bachelor of Arts candidates, Seven Ways to Say I Love You showcases the talents within Northern Illinois University’s School of Theatre and Dance. The Bachelor of Arts candidates have a truly unique degree program in the School of Theatre and Dance with the ability to receive a general degree with the choice of an emphasis in performance, directing, playwriting, and more. This allowed each individual involved in the creation and production of this performance to choose an area of theatre that related heavily to the path they want to pursue, and dabble in other areas as well. Several meetings were held with faculty advisor, Dr. Gibson Cima, throughout the Fall 2018 semester to pick a script, assign roles and directors, and plan other factors related to the production. Rehearsals began in February 2019 with each group of plays rehearsing once a week with an all (all-called) rehearsal on Saturday. For this production, I had the pleasure of acting in Film Noir and Smashing Eyes and Little Folded Hands, as well as directing The Moment. Each of these plays within Seven Ways To Say I Love You gave me a different experience and allowed me to develop my craft without the necessity of doing multiple plays.
