Tickets Are Now On Sale for Theatre’s 2018 Stage & Screen Fest

This year’s festival of original one-act plays and dance promises to be the most ambitious so far. 

“With our beautiful new theater and brand new equipment, we’ve really been able to expand what is possible in terms of theatrical production,” says director Robert Cucuzza. “As in previous years, we’re presenting new plays by our students, but for the first time with scenic design, full lighting design, and state-of-the-art projection design. This collaboration with the Multimedia program and, for the first time, our dance students, gives a glimpse into what is the future of performance at L.A. Mission College."

Performances are May 24-26, Thursday and Friday at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday at 2:00 and 8:00 p.m. in the AMP Theater in the new Arts, Media & Performance building. Tickets are on sale now through www.lamcstage.com.

HIS WILL by Nathan Williams

In this Southern Gothic dark comedy, the alcoholic family patriarch, Hank, has a vise-grip hold on his daughter, Justine, and her Native American boyfriend, August. Tensions rise when Hank's trashy girlfriend, Iris, enters the picture and soaks him for everything he’s worth, setting Hank up for a desperate attempt to hold on to what he’s got left.

WHO YOU ARE by Lissette Chavez
This psychological thriller pits a brother and sister against each other over the recent tragic death of their parents. The brother goes missing…or does he? The arrival of sketchy friends, a nosy detective, and a harrowing car ride throw this spooky drama into a thrilling and harrowing climax.

CINCINNATI’S FREE PRESS by Victoria Pfau
Nationalist fear has been stoked. A divisive politician has been elected. Immigrants are being targeted. Woman are trying to find their place in a brutal world. This is 1917 Cincinnati and the German population is under attack. The past reflects the present in this Suffragette-era newspaper drama that strikes a line across a hundred years of American history.

The 2017 Stage & Screen Fest is created, produced and performed by a company of students who are working under the direction and mentorship of Assistant Professor of Theatre Arts, Robert Cucuzza. The 2015 Stage & Screen Fest featured four student plays and a street dance performance by guest artist Boogie Frantick. With the projected opening of a state-of-the-art theater in the new Arts, Media & Performance Building in May 2017, L.A. Mission College has made a commitment to develop an interdisciplinary, contemporary culture of theatre arts that both reflects its diverse student body and provides practical experience in the production of live entertainment.
