FSCC Theatre Department announces upcoming events

Fort Scott, KS – The Fort Scott Community College (FSCC) Theatre Department announces several upcoming events this spring and summer, including a showcase, melodrama and a children’s theatre camp.

The FSCC Theatre Department presents an Acting Showcase of dramatic and comedic one-acts on May 8 and 9 with dinner served at 7 p.m. Tickets are only $15.

The evening contains adult material and is meant to showcase the actor and their process in approaching scene and character work.

“The night will include a full meal on stage while you watch all the work these actors put into these scenes throughout the semester,” said theatre director Sarah Mae Lamar. “You should laugh, cry and be moved by the talent in our actors here at FSCC.”

Besides the Acting Showcase, the FSCC Theatre Department is hosting open auditions for the summer Melodrama on Saturday, May 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Ellis Fine Arts Center.

“Come with a short comedic monologue prepared, and please, oh please, be melodramatic,” said Lamar. “I will also have cold reads available.”

Rehearsals start right after auditions and run for two and a half weeks. Opening is the last weekend in May and runs through the weekend after Good Ol’ Days.

In addition to the Melodrama, the Theatre Department is hosting a Children’s Theatre for ages eight through college age and performing Into the Woods, Jr.

“Since Seussical was such a huge success, the local talent had such a great time and performed so well together, we are going to attempt a full show in two weeks,” said Lamar.

The camp runs from July 14 – 26 with performances on Friday and Saturday night. Cost is $30 per camper.
