RRCC Presents Variations

RRCC Presents Variations
Theatre and Dance Student Showcase

LAKEWOOD, CO - Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) Theatre Arts and Dance Department presents Variations, a student showcase of theatre and dance works choreographed, written, directed, produced, and performed by RRCC students under the mentorship of RRCC Theatre Arts & Dance Instructors. The show runs February 4 – 7 at the Red Rocks Community College Theatre.

The concept for Variations emerged from the Theatre Arts & Dance students at RRCC. They were enjoying the many opportunities to perform at the RRCC Theatre but wanted to take their training one step further and find out what it would be like to take on the roles of lighting designer, costume designer, set designer, director, playwright, and choreographer. Instructors in the department responded to their request by offering to mentor the students as they “took charge” of a show.

The result has been an excellent learning experience for all those involved and has given students one more valuable step in their training in the performing arts.

Variations will be performed February 4, 5, and 6 at 7:30 p.m. and February 7 at 2:00 p.m. at the Red Rocks Community College Theatre on the Lakewood campus of Red Rocks Community College (west end, lower level). Admission is $10.  Tickets may be purchased in advance online at www.tinyurl.com/RRCCTickets. Credit and debit cards are also accepted at the door.
