Special to the Parade

Hollyweird pic-4-25-13The University of Texas-Pan American’s University Theatre Productions presents the world premiere of an original play, “Hollyweird,” written by UTPA Associate Professor David Bennett Carren.

In this comedy of Hollywood manners, the walk of fame is paved with homicide as a screenwriter and her brother accidentally murder their way to success and stardom. UTPA Assistant Professor Peter Mikolasky will direct this production, which is based on Carren’s experiences working as a writer/producer on shows like “Star Trek the Next Generation,” “Walker Texas Ranger,” and “Diagnosis Murder.”

The play is set to run through April 27 at 7:30 p.m. and closes on Sunday, April 28 with a 2 p.m. matinee. All performances will be in the Albert L. Jeffers Theatre at the Arts & Humanities Building (ARHU) on the corner of University Drive and Sugar Road.

No children below the third grade will be admitted.
