“Smoke Break” – Two strangers smoke cigarettes together and talk a little bit about life. Directed by Timothy McKee, the student cast members are Zane Johnson and Chloe Choate.
“The House on Paramore Street” – Growing up, we were told to always knock before we enter someone’s house. Open houses never go well anyways, though. Directed by Audrey McKillip, the student cast members are Marco Molina, Dak Jones, Sidney Timmer, Taylor Smith, Vero Villalobos and E.J. Mendoza.
“The Burning Room” – After coming home from work, Montana tries to deal with Dallas moving back to Texas, until a promotion at Montana’s work leads to them discussing their future. Directed by Eric Joshua Valle, the student cast members are Marco Molina and Erica Cazares.
