LCC to Open Season with the Bedroom Farce "A Flea in Her Ear"

Here's a heads-up on the Season Theater Schedule for Lower Columbia Community College:

The Fall Quarter 2012 show is "A Flea in Her Ear" by Georges Feydeau and is billed as the funniest bedroom farce ever. Show dates are November 7-10, 15-17, 23 and 24; all times are 7:30 p.m.

A woman suspects her husband of infidelity and she and her best friend concoct a perfumed letter to trap him at the Hotel Pussycat. In true Feydeau fashion the plan misfires; the plot is complicated by confused identities, revolving beds and a great many slamming doors.

Tickets may be purchased in advance from the LCC Bookstore in the Student Center, at Encore Concession in the Rose Center, or from the online ticket store. Tickets may also be purchased one hour before performances at the Rose Center Box Office. General Ticket Prices are $8.00 for Adults, $7.00 for Seniors and are free to LCC students, faculty, staff, and children (12 and under).

We're still waiting to hear if we'll be reviewing the show, but if we do the review will be posted here the morning of Thursday, November 8.

For the Winter Quarter 2013 they will be offering An Evening with Tennessee (Three Tennessee Williams One-Acts: "The Long Goodbye," "The Purification," and "Something Unspoken"), February 20-23 and 28; March 1, 2 and 7-9.

"The Long Goodbye" is about a young man who moves out of the family house filled with memories. "The Purification" concerns a woman who has died and the people who knew her that gather to judge the man who killed her. But did he kill her, or just an image? "Something Unspoken" explores the relationship between a southern aristocratic woman and her private secretary. The Winter plays have not yet been cast. Auditions for An Evening with Tennessee will take place, 6-9 p.m., January 7 and 8 at the Rose Center for the Arts Center Stage on the LCC campus.

The Spring Quarter 2013, a time shifting British African comedy by Caryl Churchill, will be "Cloud 9" presented May 22-25 and 30; June 1 and 6-8. It is both a parody and spoof of the 1880s Victorian Empire and its rigid attitudes towards sex. The play shifts twenty-five years later to London in 1980 where all the characters' repressed sexual longings have evaporated along with the British Empire. It has not yet been cast. Auditions for Cloud 9 will be April 8 and 9, 2013 at the Rose Center for the Arts Center Stage on the LCC campus. Roles for 4 men and 3 women.
