Studio on Stage Features MCC Acting and Dance April 13

Studio on Stage, which features scenes, dance numbers, and improvised games and sketches from MCC acting and dance students, takes place on Wednesday, April 13, at from 6-7 p.m. in Overbrook Theater.

The annual show is part of the College’s Arts and Humanities Department Open House.  All events are free and open to the public.

  • Students from the Acting II class, under the direction of Instructor Sheila Wahamaki will perform a variety of scenes from the A.R. Gurney comedy of manners, The Dining Room. Set in a single dining room, the different scenes reflect the activity of different households in differing time periods that intertwine and overlap. The scenes will feature works in process by the acting students.
  • Students from the Improvisation for Actors class, under the direction of Instructor Tom Harryman will present some different improvised scenes and games. Using improvisational forms from shows like Whose Line is it Anyway and Chicago’s Improv giants The Second City and iO, the players will make up their material on-the-spot with suggestions from the audience. Trust us, this is all made up!
  • Students from the Repertory Dance, Ballet and Social Dance classes, under the direction of Instructors Melissa Brunsting and Cathy Gamby will present selected numbers from their classes and numbers from the upcoming Overbrook Dance Theater In Concert XXVIII.
