LSC-Montgomery Drama Department
Lone Star College-Montgomery Drama Department
The Lone Star College-Montgomery Drama department provides a professional training experience for all students within the disciplines of acting, design and technology, and theatrical studies.
We stress that theatre is a collaborative art form with equal importance given to all roles - on stage and off. Students are encouraged to participate fully in all aspects of theatre production.
And All That Jazz! The LSC-Montgomery Performing Arts will present Chicago, the Musical on April 23 to 25, 2015. This classic musical is set in the roaring twenties with chorine Roxie Hart, who murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap... until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another 'Merry Murderess" Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune, and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse (PG-13, some adult-themes).
Preview performance is on April 22 with a special preview reception beginning at 4:30 p.m. and performance beginning 5:30 p.m. Regular performances are at 7 p.m. in the evening and a matinee performance at 3 p.m. on Saturday. For additional information, please contact MontgomeryFineArts@LoneStar.edu or call 936.273.7021.
