Crazytown

 

This weekend, everyone should come and watch the Toccoa Falls College Theatrical Society perform in this semester’s play, Crazytown, by Jonathan Rand.

Performances will be in Grace Chapel Friday and Saturday (November 13-14) at 7pm and Sunday (November 15) at 3pm.

Tickets are available for purchase in the student center now. Tickets are sold for a dollar less if bought in the Student Center this week. Prices are $5 for seniors and students, $7 for adults and $3 for children.

The audience will visit Crazytown, where things are a little off-kilter. The town’s news team will cover amazing stories like the heated presidential debate for Crazytown Elementary school, the least offensive play in the whole world, and a man who was arrested for being too darn nice.  Anything goes in this town, and the antics of the citizens are hilarious.

Directors Renee Morris and Epiphany Hunter have been working with the cast all semester to make this play the best it can be.

Renee Morris shared a few of her thoughts about the production.

1. What has been your favorite part of putting this play together?

My favorite part of putting this play together has been watching how theater brings people together. We have students from all levels of college and one that is dual enrolled with us. Everyone has been brought together because of this play and it’s cool to see how they interact and have fun. It has been a privilege to direct this play.

2. Why should people come and see this play?

People should come and see this play because it’s hilarious. The actors and actresses have fun while performing and that is something worth seeing. They have worked so hard and an audience will only add energy to the performance and all their hard work will be paid off.

3. What do you want the cast and audience to take away from this experience?

The cast should know that performing this play will help in the long run. You gain confidence and help with time management skills. For the audience, I hope you walk out with your guts hurting from laughter. I hope you continue to support the theatrical society in the future from this performance.

The members of the TFC Theatrical Society greatly enjoy putting together plays like this for the enjoyment of the student body. This year’s cast has had a lot of fun putting together this comedy. The jokes are hilarious and the characters are zany and quirky. This play is sure to be enjoyed by all, so everyone is encouraged to support the society by seeing Crazytown!

 

 

Theatrical Society Holds Auditions for Spring’s “Harvey”

The Theatrical Society began the year with auditions for the play “Harvey.” Which is a wonderfully comedic story about a man who sees a 6’5” rabbit. His claims drive his family crazy and hilarity ensues as they attempt to commit him into an asylum. Several students showed up to perform a variety of comedic monologues. Everything ranging from what women are looking for in a man, to Alice in Wonderland, and being stranded on an island. My personal favorite was Alex Luthor’s “Umbridge” monologue from the wildly funny “Very Potter Musical.” In case you didn’t know, he is quite convincing at being an angry woman. If you weren’t able to attend the auditions, but would like to help with the play in some other way, contact Chance Rigdon or Tiffany Rowlett. He is the director of this year’s play and she will be helping him as assistant director. They will be able to answer any questions you have, or point you in the right direction to someone who can.

There are a variety of jobs for everyone. If you enjoy working with people, perhaps you could help with advertising and spread the word about the Theatrical Society. Hospitality is another good option for those who enjoy working with others. In this position, you have the opportunity to welcome people when they come to the play or bring refreshments to the actors. For a more hands-on experience, you could join the backstage crew and help set up, move, and take down props and other play-related items. It’s a good experience for those who are interested drama, but would rather not act on stage. Make-up, which is required on stage, is a little awkward for the men to out on. So all you ladies who are good at putting in makeup should consider helping out in that way. The Theatrical Society can always use more people. It takes a lot of work to put on a play, and every volunteer counts.

And remember, as you’re walking to and from your classes, keep an eye out for Harvey: you may just see him.
