South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) today released the performance schedule for the fall drama production Cloud 9. The play takes on social issues in the Victorian era and modern-day Britain as characters transcend time, sexuality, and gender. The show will open on November 17 and run through November 20 at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts Main Stage at the SPSCC Olympia Campus.
The fall production is directed by SPSCC’s newest drama professor Lauren Love. According to Love, Cloud 9 embodies provocative themes that are valuable in challenging the status quo and empowering audience members to think differently. Written by British playwright Caryl Churchill, the play dramatizes the abuse of power and playfully takes on weighty social issues including colonialism, race, sexuality, and gender.
Love joins SPSCC after a lengthy career at the University of Wisconsin at Baraboo/Sauk County. “This institution is invested in building the arts,” said Love in regards to SPSCC. “They have demonstrated that there is a strong commitment and the energy to do it.”
The show will run evening performances on November 17, 18 and 19 at 7:00 p.m. and a matinée show will run on November 20 at 2:00 p.m.
Tickets are available at OlyTix.org or by calling (360) 753-8586.
