Our 2016/2017 Season!
KCC Theatre is happy to announce the titles for the 2016-2017 Academic season, ‘Noises Off!’ and ‘Zombie Prom’!
The fall 2016 semester will bring one of the most highly-acclaimed Tony award nominated comedies of the past 30 years, a contemporary classic: Michael Frayn’s ‘Noises Off’! A breathtakingly hilarious view into the chaos that can occur when ‘the show must go on’, ‘Noises Off’! is the best kind of play-within-a-play… one that allows the audience to get a glimpse into what it’s like to put on a play where everything goes off the rails. Adding to the fun is the unique concept of utilizing a set that rotates- giving the audience the ability to see the show from both angles: both in front of and behind the scenes. Due to language, alcohol references and some comedic sexual content, ‘Noises Off!’ is intended for audiences 13 and up with parental guidance suggested for students under 16. Auditions for ‘Noises Off!’ will be held in the Binda Performing Arts Center on KCC’s main campus on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 29 and 30 from 7:00-9:30 p.m. More info will follow a month or so before auditions. ‘Noises Off!’ will run in the Binda Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 11, 12, 18 and 19 and at 3:00 p.m. on Nov. 13 and 20.
The spring 2017 semester will bring an under-appreciated, off-broadway cult hit from the 1990’s, ‘Zombie Prom’. ‘Zombie Prom’ is a doo-wop, early rock ‘n roll influenced homage to the early years of science fiction and monster movie films, smashed together with a healthy dose of teenagers in love. With ultra-catchy tunes, retro dance, delightfully cheesy dialogue and heart for days, Zombie Prom will ooze it’s way into your heart and bring your awkward, pubescent love of life back from the dead! Auditions for ‘Zombie Prom’ will be held in the Binda Performing Arts Center on KCC’s main campus on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 23 and 24 from 7:00-9:30 p.m. More info will follow a month or so before auditions. ‘Zombie Prom’ will run in the Binda Theatre on April 20 (7:30 p.m.), 21 (7:30 p.m.), 22 (3:00 p.m. AND 7:30 p.m.) and 23 (3:00 p.m. only).
In addition to our two main stage shows, look for projects by Encore Theatre Company throughout this coming summer and the school year in addition to our usual end-of-semester showcase show, Mich-Mash, at 7:30 p.m. on both Dec. 9, and May 5, 2017!
After raising the bar yet again with ‘Crimes of the Heart’ and ‘Loserville’ this past year, KCC Theatre continues to grow and build on campus and in the area at large. Come be a part of what will promise to be another great year of creativity within our community!
