SPRING THEATRE PRODUCTION!
MR. GRIEVES and THE VAMPIRES
Rehearsals have begun on our spring production, Mr. Grieves and The Vampires, written and directed by Associate Professor Robert Cucuzza. This original production uses the 1915 silent film serial, Les Vampires, and the classic Pixies album, Doolittle, as launching points. In this lightning-fast world, an intrepid journalist goes to perilous lengths to bring down the brutal anarchist crime syndicate, The Vampires—masters of kidnapping, counterfeiting, disguise, poison, getaways, explosives, and chaotic murder. In Mr. Grieves and The Vampires, the world of the stage will become a gothic echo chamber, with film, video, theatre, and music bouncing between the inky landmark film and the brutally live world of punk.
Mr. Grieves and The Vampires will be presented May 12-20 in the AMP Theater. Tickets will go on sale on May 1.
GUEST LECTURE MARCH 6 • 7:00 pm
Join us on Monday, March 6 at 7:00 pm for an evening with actor, podcaster, storyteller, and author Christopher Rivas. Rivas will read from his newly-published memoir, Brown Enough, about forging a path in the entertainment industry as a Latino artist, and discovering himself in the process. Rivas will also answer questions about Vox Pop, a new student-centered performance celebration at LA Mission College, which he will be curating and hosting. The evening will wrap up with a book signing, hosted by Tia Chucha's Centro Cultural.
This is a free event that will take place in AMP107, the Arts, Media & Performance Theater.
