College Presents Student-Directed Actors Workshop Performance: Living With the Savage



Lone Star College-Montgomery’s theatre honors fraternity, Delta Psi Omega, presents an Actors Workshop production of Living With the Savage, by Dawson Moore, February 16-18 in the Black Box Theatre, located in the Performing Arts Center (Building D, Room 204).
 
Performances times are Thursday, February 16, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, February 17, at 7:30 p.m.; and Saturday, February 18, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. There are no late arrivals, and the performance lasts approximately 45 minutes.
 
Under the guidance of Chase Waites, theatre professor at LSC-Montgomery, and Rob Kreps, program director for live entertainment technology and associate professor of theatre, the Delta Psi Omega students are taking on larger roles in the workshop to create the production from the ground up.  

“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.”

Living With the Savage is the story of Martin and Angelica who have their world view shattered when their matriarchal mother brings home a literal loincloth-wearing, spear-wielding savage to be their step-father.

In addition to the short play, there will be several scenes performed by students who have been nominated for showcase performances and scholarship auditions at the Kennedy Center American College Region 6 Theatre Festival in Norman, Okla., February 21-25.

Admission to all performances is $5, and all monetary contributions support the theatre scholarship and program fund.
 
Tickets are available online, along with recommended donation levels, or by contacting Denise Meyers, program coordinator for theatre/fine arts, at 936.273.7021 or Denise.Meyers@LoneStar.edu.
