The Exonerated
by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen
Directed by Brian Zoldessy

What effect does it have on a person--a soul, a life--to have freedom and self-respect stripped away and then, ostensibly, returned years later after decades of incarceration? The Exonerated attempts to answer this question through the words of six innocent men and women who, after years in jail, emerged from death row to try to reclaim what was left of their lives.

Tri-C Eastern Campus Studio Theatre
Admission: $10

A hilarious homage for Shakespeare lovers, haters and everyone in between as three actors frantically attempt to perform the entire canon — all 37 plays! — in 97 minutes. That necessitates some . . . creative editing. Cheer the histories on the gridiron! Get down with Othello through the magic of rap! Pick up culinary tips courtesy Titus Andronicus! This is Shakespeare as written by Reader's Digest, acted by Monty Python, and performed at the speed of “The Minute Waltz.”

Gary has separated from his wife and moved into a small apartment in Oakland, CA. His father, who suffers from severe diabetes, has moved as well. Yet Gary is full of the optimism of reuniting with his wife. Seeing money as the big issue in saving his marriage, he hatches a plan to win a bunch by catching “the” ball hit by Barry Bonds. “The Catch” is a heartwarming play about family, and especially the bonds between father and son. One free performance is offered as part of the Showtime Matinee Series for High School Students.

Twelfth Night; or, What You Will

by William Shakespeare

West Campus Spring 2014:

The Maids
Written by Jean Genet
Directed by Fred Gloor

In Jean Genet’s tale of illusion and cruelty, Solange and Claire are two housemaids who construct elaborate sadomasochistic rituals when their mistress (Madame) is away. The focus of their role-playing is the murder of Madame and they take turns portraying both sides of the power divide. Their deliberate pace and devotion to detail guarantees that they always fail to actualize their fantasies by ceremoniously "killing" Madame at the ritual's dénouement.

This play deals with adult themes and material. There will be limited seating for this production.                           

Performance Dates: February 27th, 28th, and March 1st at 8 pm and March 2nd at 2 pm      

Tickets are $10 - $2 (tri-c students with valid ID)
Box office: 216-987-5536


Music, Lyrics, and Book by Jonathon Larson
Directed by Pierre-Jacques Brault
Music Direction by Joanna Li

Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.

Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel.. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. 

Auditions: February 8th and 9th from Noon to 4 pm            
Running:  April 11th, 12th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th at 8 pm and April 13th at 2 pm
