Join us in the KAM Auditorium for a free screening of the Illinois Theatre production of REDBALL.

REDBALL was produced through an interdepartmental partnership between Illinois Theatre Actors, Theatre Studies Screenwriters, and Media and Cinema Studies Filmmakers to create and produce original content from the ground up. 

About the film

Sam and Jessie travel to the heart of grief, friendship and the Krannert Art Museum in Red Ball. Written by the Theatre Studies Beginning Screenwriting students, filmed by the Media & Cinema Studies Advanced Filmmaking class, and starring the Illinois Theatre Department Senior On-Camera BFA actors, Red Ball is the first in a hopefully long line of interdepartmental collaborative short film projects. 

An enterprise in magical realism, Red Ball was filmed on location in the Krannert Art Museum and the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts over the course of six days, following COVID safety guidelines.

REDBALL will be shown April 15-17 in the Krannert Art Museum Auditorium (Room 62). The film will be on continuous loop, with sound, and open to the public. Admission is free.
