Carnegie Mellon has trained its share of actors, and next week, some of those alums return to campus with a preview of a new indie film.
The romantic comedy Breakup at a Wedding is just that: When the bride gets cold feet at the last minute, she suggests that she and groom playact the wedding rather than face the embarassment of calling off the ceremony. What could go wrong?!
The film, directed by CMU alum Victor Quinaz, was produced by several other CMU School of Drama alums, including Pittsburgher and Star Trek star Zachary Quinto.
The screening is 4:30 p.m. Tue., April 16, at McConomy Auditorium on CMU's campus, and will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast and production team. The event is open to the public, but seating is limited and advance ticket purchase is recommended.
Tickets are $10 ($5 with CMU ID), and can be purchased at Purnell Center box office (412-268-2407). Proceeds go toward the School of Drama's Senior Showcase.
