Mark your calender for Triton College School of Performing Art’s plays

| July 4, 2013

When was the last time you went to see a play? What’s stopping you? The price or the crowds? Don’t let anything stop you from a casual setting and most reasonably priced play performance at Triton College. Did I mention that the performance was a job well done by the cast and production team?  For a price of $12 per person and $10 for students it is worth your while to check out Triton’s School of Performing Arts plays.

The play that I attended was “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare. This is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies and is widely performed across the world. This play was Directed by Amy V. Fenton, who is the Artistic Director of Theater at Triton College. Ms. Fenton is responsible for directing a cast of 16 actors which are a mix of students and actors associated with performing art groups throughout the Chicago area. These actors are backed up by a Production Team of 13 technical support experts. After the play I had the opportunity to talk with the actors. My main question which had a common thread answer was, “With acting apparently being your passion, what is your dream come true in the field of acting?” Everyone agreed it was to eventually become a professional actor. A lot of time and hard work was invested into the production of this play. This cast has their act together.

This play was the last of three plays done in the fall, winter, and spring with the summer off. The new play season will start in November 2013 thru spring of 2014. A follow-up article in September’s issue of People and Places Newspaper will list the new seasons play schedule starting in November 2013. Stay tuned for this information and mark your calendar to attend.
