May 30 (Plano, TX) - Quad C Theatre at Collin County Community College announces their 2006-2007 season.
Quad C Theatre will launch their 2006-2007 season in October with Orpheus Descending, A timeless love story by Tennessee Williams. Inspired by the classic Greek myth, Orpheus Descending documents the tragic romance between a lonely Southern Belle and a handsome young drifter; a rural Orpheus who descends to rescue his love . not in Hades, but amid the intrigue, gossip and violence of a hot-tempered town. Directed by Gail Cronauer. October 12 - 22, 2006. John Anthony Theatre.
Our holiday offering is Light Up the Sky, a delightful comedy by Moss Hart. The opening of their new play has lead a group of pretentious New York theatre-folk to believe it is a flop. Instantly they turn against themselves, the production and the playwright... and savagely proceed to destroy themselves and all their former hopes. Directed by New York director Rosemary K. Andress (The Shape of Things). November 30 - December 10, 2006. Black Box Theatre.
In spring we will present Don't Rock the Jukebox, an interactive musical revue conceived by Brad Baker and Mark Mullino. An interactive evening of music from Broadway, Pop, Rock, Gospel, Country and Rhythm & Blues, Don't Rock the Jukebox is an inventive revue of material voted on by the members of the audience! Each performance is unique, as the patrons select which songs are performed, and by which performer! "A true crowd pleaser! Perfect for all ages!" Directed by Brad Baker and Mark Mullino. March 1 - 11, 2007. John Anthony Theatre.
The season will conclude with How I Learned to Drive, a darkly comedic play by Paula Vogel. A funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival as seen through the lens of a troubling relationship between a young girl and an older man. Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize. Directed by Robin Armstrong. April 26 - May 6, 2007. Black Box Theatre.
