CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Theatre UNI will host the first of three 'Conversations with the Community,' on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 2 p.m. in the Bertha Martin Theatre on the UNI campus. The series is designed to share with the public Theatre UNI's mission and philosophy on producing theatre within an educational environment.

The subject of the first conversation is the process used to select plays. Participating are Jay Edelnant, professor of theatre, and Karen Mitchell, associate professor of communication studies, artistic director of Interpreters Theatre and director of SAVE Forum Actors.

Theatre UNI is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Strayer-Wood Theatre and 100 years of theater on campus. 'The conversation series was developed to discuss the importance of art and theatre in challenging audiences to examine their personal views, consider their role in society and think beyond their immediate community,' said Jascenna Haislet-Carlson, marketing director and theatre publicist.

The conversation series is free and open to the public.
