KCC Theatre’s 2021-22 season is looking to step back out of the wings and onto stage once again! Start marking up into calendar now to get involved in and/or attend some eclectic projects in the Fall and the 1970s-era, upbeat classic ‘The Wiz’ in spring 2022!
Fall Projects: Mich-Mash and RPG Shakespeare!
Mich-Mash: 7:30pm December 17, 2021- Binda Performing Arts Center
Mich-Mash is our performance showcase show that happens at the end of each Fall and Spring semester. A collaboration between each semesters’ Acting classes and the Encore Theatre club, Mich-Mash offers a completely Free, hour(ish) long performance of original work where we attempt to present 30 plays in 60 minutes! This year’s Mich-Mash will be a combination of live performance and digital pieces. A great way to unwind at the end of the semester- don’t miss it!
RPG Shakespeare: (Online- date/time/site TBA)
Performed by current KCC Theatre students an local community/alumni veterans, this will be an online ‘staged reading’ of a handful of scenes from Shakespeare’s classic comedy ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, RPG Shakespeare is intended as a workshop in developing a concept for a near-future production of the full show to be performed at KCC soon. The presentation will give viewers a first glimpse into what happens when you smash tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons with live theatre. Tune in to watch us play around with a play!
