Student Body
By Frank Winters
Directed by Deb Keller

A college party. A video recording. A possible sexual assault. College students become locked in an intense moral argument over how to treat a sexual encounter that happened in their midst. (Broadway Publishing Inc.)

Post-show discussions will take place following Saturday evening performances on February 16 and 23.

In January 2018, college producers from around the Midwest saw the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point production of STUDENT BODY at the Region 3 - Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Indianapolis. One year later, three of those Michigan colleges are now presenting their own productions: Kalamazoo College in late February, Albion College in April, and Lansing Community College Feb. 15-24. What drew these schools to Frank Winters' drama is how loyalties and friendships confuse a seemingly straightforward ethical dilemma.

By Matthew Wilkas and Mark Setlock

Welcome to the hilarious, terrifying and surreal world of child beauty pageants. Pinky Corningfield will do anything to make sure her little angel wins the ultimate title, Supreme Queen. When Marge, a newcomer to the pageant circuit, shows up and starts grabbing all the glory, Pinky and her minions, Bob and Bobby, use some unorthodox methods in order to ensure her darling, Chevrolet, is victorious. Glitz. Glamour. Kidnapping. Money. Really, really small false teeth.

This play is intended for mature audiences.

April 6 and 7 performances will be sign interpreted by LCC student interpreters.

FRI-SAT, 4/26-27, 8:00 PM Orphan Blues - Beginning Studio
Directed by Andy Callis

The collection of one-acts in Orphan Blues are about successful or failed attempts at connection in a dislocated world. The types of attempted connections are romantic, moral, social or familial, and they often take place in a world in which there is no parental presence. These characters are lonely, and they are reaching out for some type of connection. Included are works by David Ives, Terrence McNally and Beth Henley, among others.
