College Presents Domestic Companion, Student-Directed Actors Workshop Performance



Lone Star College-Montgomery’s production of Domestic Companion, presented by the Delta Psi Omega Actors Workshop, will be Thursday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m; Friday, November 18, at 7:30 p.m.; and Saturday, November 19, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. All performances will take place in the college’s new Black Box theatre in the Performing Arts Center (Building D, Room 204).
 
There are no late arrivals and the performance will last approximately 30 minutes.

The Actors Workshop series allow students to create productions from the ground up and Delta Psi Omega, the theatre honors fraternity, has taken on the task of producing these shows.
 
Chase Waites, theatre professor at LSC-Montgomery, and Rob Kreps, program director for the live entertainment technology program and associate professor of theatre at LSC-Montgomery, work with the theatre students, helping them take on larger roles within the workshop productions.

“Students are handling all of the tasks associated with the production including budgeting, directing, and designing,” said Waites. “There is no greater teacher than experience, and these students are learning a great deal about the production side of theatre.”

Domestic Companion is a comedy by Dawson Moore, a classmate of Kreps. The play takes a funny look at an interesting relationship, when Lindsey, who’s frustrated by her boyfriend Cato's snoring, is tricked by Kane, her stalker boss, into injecting Cato with cat DNA. The snoring has disappeared, but there are all sorts of complications to this rash misapplication of genetic engineering.

Admission to all performances is $5 or two cans of food that will be donated to a local food bank. All monetary contributions support the theatre scholarship and program fund. Tickets are also available online, along with recommended donation levels.

Tickets can also be reserved by contacting Denise Meyers, program coordinator for theatre/fine arts division at LSC-Montgomery, at 936.273.7021 or Denise.Meyers@LoneStar.edu.
