Theatre Arts and Drama Club Students to Present ‘Recent Tragic Events’

Montgomery County Community College’s Drama club and Theatre Arts program will present Craig Wright’s “Recent Tragic Events” April 25, 26 and 27 at 8 p.m., and April 27 and 28 at 2 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre, lower level of the Science Center, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for seniors and students.

The story of “Recent Tragic Events” unfolds the night after Sept. 11, 2001. In Minneapolis, Waverly and Andrew meet for a blind date, and in the shadow of the recent tragic events, they struggle to maintain normalcy. With so much outside of their control, they wonder whether they have the free will to change the courses of their lives or if they are simply bound by fate. The play contains adult themes and language.

“Recent Tragic Events” is directed by Theater Instructor Timothy Gallagher, assisted by Camila Romero, Dos Santos and Stage Manager Mackenzie Walters. Theater students created and built all aspects of the production. The cast includes Sara Davis, Sarah Davis, Colin O’ Gorman, Khalil Lewis, and Julia McIntyre.

The production staff includes Camila Romero, Dos Santos, Mackenzie Walters, Steven Buck, Tim Odom, Ken Hayse, Khayir Lewis, Alexander Reynolds, Sharii Nelson, Jacquelyn Dotts, Rokena Edwards, Carolyn Dixon, Katie Schnaath, Bruno Alves, Patrick Carlino, Brian Shim, Scott Macneill, Steph Giudice, Cassie West, Khalil Lewis, Zach Sellet, Liz Hunsberger, Daniel Nguyen, and Peyton DeSanta.

Michael Whistler serves as the advisor of the Drama Club, and the Theatre Production Workshop is under the direction of Tim Gallagher.
