Finally, College Your Way Again (Get Amped!)

August 12, 2021

These past 16 months, our community has had a lot of practice being patient, following guidelines, and staying flexible. Some folks made the most out of it: learning new things, moving at a slower pace, and enjoying time alone at home. Some counted down the days to get together with friends and family, and missed having a full schedule with lots to do. And a lot of others fell somewhere in between.

The same is true of SPSCC students over the past year. Most students attended classes online from home, some joined in-person programs, and others took the hybrid class approach.

The South Puget Sound Community College Theatre Collective’s “I Am Nobody’s Lunch” is a play/cabaret whose premise — that finding truth is complicated when everyone seems to be lying — could have been pulled from recent news reports.

But in this time of pandemic, what’s most newsworthy is that the production will be performed live. In a theater. With a live audience.
