College production of ‘The Colored Museum’ set for Nov. 2-4 at Ohio Theatre
Theater students from Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) will present The Colored Museum during an encore appearance at the Ohio Theatre at Playhouse Square.
Performances will take place Nov. 2-4 at the historic downtown theater. Students from multiple Tri-C campuses will perform and work behind the scenes to present the play on one of the nation’s grandest stages.
The Colored Museum begins at 7:30 p.m. each evening. Tickets are $20 ($5 for students) and can be purchased at www.playhousesquare.org or by calling 216-241-6000. The Ohio Theatre is located at 1511 Euclid Ave.
Students from the College made their debut at Playhouse Square in November 2016 while staging Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. Applause filled the Ohio Theatre after each performance.
“Tri-C’s students proved themselves worthy of the Playhouse Square spotlight last year,” said Paul Cox, the College’s dean of creative arts. “They’re working hard to earn the same ovations when they take the stage again.”
The Colored Museum by Tony Award-winning playwright George C. Wolfe features 11 scenes that explore and satirize prominent themes of African-American culture. It uses a comedic touch to redefine what it means to be black in contemporary America.
The play also will be presented at Tri-C’s Western Campus Theatre, with performances scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26-28. Tickets are $10 ($8 for seniors and students). Group rates are available.
