OJC theatre offerings for spring semester
 
Want to be a part of the Otero Players?  Are you interested in acting, stage design or directing? Arts faculty Cassidy Litle offers several opportunities to get involved this spring at Otero Junior College.

Two theatre courses will be offered: Theatre Production I (THE131) and Development of Theatre Greek-Renaissance (THE211). In addition, Litle will be directing Bus Stop by William Inge.

Theatre Production I allows students to put into practice theories of theatre production.  Opportunities are available for participation in set construction, scenic artistry, costuming, lighting, sound, acting, stage managing and administration.  This class will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30-1:45 p.m. beginning the week of Jan. 9, 2017. 

Development of Theatre Greek – Renaissance surveys the history and evolution of drama from Ancient Greece to the Renaissance, emphasizing all aspects of the art from period values to analysis of dramatic literature and performance. This course is one of the Statewide Guaranteed Transfer courses.  It will meet Monday evenings from 6 – 9:30 p.m. beginning Jan. 9, 2017.

Production and audition dates have not yet been set, but Litle plans to bring Bus Stop by William Inge to the stage this spring, as well.  Bus Stop is a three-act play that blends drama, romance and comedy. Set at a small diner 25 miles west of Kansas City, five strangers are stranded in a small town as a snow storm hits the region.  Left with nothing to do, the strangers encounter the small town drama and dalliances of the locals while sharing their own stories, tribulations, and the down-home atmosphere of the local diner.  Watch for an audition announcement coming soon.  Both students and the community are encouraged to audition.

For more information on any of these opportunities, contact Cassidy Litle, Arts Faculty, at 719.384.6851 or cassidy.litle@ojc.edu .
