Three community colleges partner in unique theater production
February 22, 2017 by Sarah
Carroll Community College, Howard Community College, and Prince George’s Community College, with campuses in Largo and Upper Marlboro, recently announced that they are collaborating on The Farm Theatre Project. The play they will be producing is titled ‘Tanner and The Cotton’.
The Farm Theatre Project is based in New York and typically connects professional playwrights with four-year college and university students, adding their conversations into the scripts of the plays they produce. This is the first time the Project is partnering with community colleges.
Theatre Director of Prince George’s Community College, Gary Fry, commented that it was exciting to be partnering with the college’s sister institutions to bring together the diverse student populations to create this unique stage production. The Project is a way to mirror humanity and enable the voices of the students to be heard, he added.
The first performances get underway this week. They will be held in the Scott Center at the Carroll Community College Theater from February 23 through February 26, with evening performances from February 23 through February 25 and a matinee on February 26. Performances later this year will be held at the other colleges.
The three colleges might benefit from the assistance of a direct mail printing company to promote this special production to the surrounding communities by creating flyers that can be mailed or distributed at the several campuses.
