Titus Andronicus

On Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 4:30 and 7:00PM, the Churchill Theatre Department will have their opening night of the Shakespeare play Titus Andronicus. Although the Theatre Department has done many Shakespeare plays, this is their first attempt at a more sinister drama.

“Even if it’s pretty violent, I hope people still enjoy it,” Senior Carter Cabral said. “We’ve had a lot of fun putting this play together.”

They will also have shows on Thursday, Nov.8th at 4:30 and 7:30, and Monday, Nov.12 at 7:00PM.

Theater Performs Two Fall Plays

As the cast of the   two plays, Moon over Buffalo & Romeo and Juliet, vigorously begin practicing it becomes apparent that the theatre department’s work does not end there. As well as building, painting, and lighting all of their own shows, theatre students continue to fill their schedules. Many of our theatre students compete weekly at speech tournaments winning many awards (see Speech and Debate update). The seniors are preparing monologues for the Greater San Antonio Area Audition (GSAA) where they plan to attract the attention of visiting College and Fine Arts representatives.

In addition to  practicing till 6 p.m. every night and the Friday-Saturday Speech tournaments, and GSAA preparation, many seniors are also competing in the Young Arts Competition, where they vie for a trip to Miami to study under respected Fine Arts Professors hoping for the chance to perform before President Obama.

Plan  to attend Moon over Buffalo on October 27, 28, 29 at 7 pm and 5:30 pm on 29 and 30 for $7 in the Lanny Neaglin Theatre.  Romeo and Juliet will be November 2, 3, 4 at 7pm and 5:30 pm  on the 5 for $7 in the Black Box Theatre.
