About this project

The Las Cruces One-Act Festival & Seminar will be held on May 2nd & 3rd, 2013, in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  It is the only festival of its kind in Southern New Mexico for high school students.  The events will be centered around the newly renovated downtown area, with performances taking place at the Las Cruces Community Theatre and workshops in surrounding museums, businesses, and meeting facilities.  Students have the opportunity to perform for other students and panelists, and will choose two workshops to attend per day (from a total of four) in addition to attending performances and participating in their own performance.

Risks and challenges

Although this project could have some challenges down the road, the two directors, Philip Hernandez and Juli Stephenson, have a successful track record for projects in the theatrical community.

Juli Stephenson first became interested in theater and performing in high school, and recently became involved again as the parent of a theater student. Juli possesses a Bachelor of Arts in Government and Law & Society, a Bachelor of Criminal Justice, and a Master of Criminal Justice. From 2002-2007 she served as Adjunct Faculty for the Criminal Justice Department at New Mexico State University. She is on the executive board of the Dona Ana Theater Association, is the Vice President of the Las Cruces High School Theater Booster Club, and is on the board of the Las Cruces Community Theater.

Information on Philip Hernandez can be found via his website at www.PhilipLHernandez.com or his biography on Kickstarter.
