Penn State theater plans 2 performances
UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State Centre Stage Virtual will offer two free productions as part of its fall “season.”
PSCS Artistic Director Rick Lombardo notes that “… due to the pandemic, and as Penn State School of Theatre’s response to racial injustice, we decided to dedicate our fall programming to examining and exploring these issues,” says Lombardo.
“The Osaze Project” is directed and devised by professor emeritus Charles Dumas.
This workshop production is scheduled for a premiere at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 13. The cast and staff includes students from the School of Theatre and actors from the community.
“The Osaze Project” explores the incidents which led up to the Osaze Osagie tragedy, the tragedy itself, and the ongoing community response.
The fall virtual season concludes with a “Cabaret of Many Colors” with one performance at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 4.
Directed by Steve H. Broadnax III, the Cabaret show will feature musical theatre performances, new works, solo vocalists, spoken word and dance.
Penn State Centre Stage Virtual is offered free to the public, and was created “to support Penn State students during this difficult time.”
