The Lone Star College-Montgomery drama department invites the community to attend one of their performances of the dark, yet uplifting, comedy Tigers Be Still, playing October 8-10 in the MainStage Theatre on the LSC-Montgomery campus.
The drama department at Lone Star College-Montgomery brings a modern piece of theatre to the stage with the dark, yet uplifting, comedy Tigers Be Still.
The play follows two sisters and their mother, all in different phases of their lives and each suffering from varying degrees of depression, as they begin to find their footing. Despite the seemingly dark subject matter, the play is a relatable and endearing look into life’s many struggles. The play speaks of the small yet strong personal victories that are often the most meaningful.
“It looks at America in recession,” says Julie Akers, adjunct theater professor at LSC-Montgomery, and the show’s director. “It follows three members of a family living together out of economic necessity.”
Akers, with over 30 years of directing experience, is making her directorial debut on the LSC-Montgomery stage.
“It’s a sweet, effecting, truthful, and vivid play,” Akers said. “You really end up rooting for these characters.”
“Tigers Be Still is timely, funny, and ultimately touching,” says Chase Waites, drama department chair at LSC-Montgomery. “In this drama there is something that everyone can relate to and is a wisely written show with a lot of heart.”
The play features a small cast of four actors and lighting and sound designers who are all students at LSC-Montgomery.
Tigers Be Still contains adult material and language and is not recommended for younger audiences.
Tigers Be Still will play October 8-10, at 7 p.m., in the Mainstage Theatre on the LSC-Montgomery campus, located in building D. There will be a matinee performance on Saturday, October 10, at 3 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online by visit www.LoneStar.edu/Theatre-Montgomery or at the box office on the day of the performance.
