Spring 2020 Production Schedule

The JJC Theatre is proud to update our Spring 2020 productions schedule.

Running March 5-8, 2020, is our production of the musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. This lighthearted farce is set in Ancient Rome and features Pseudolus, a crafty slave, who struggles to win the hand of a beautiful (but slow-witted) courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero- in exchange for Pseudolus’s freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two. This show is fastpaced, witty, irreverent, and one of the funniest musicals you will ever see. Directed by Tammy Perkins and held in the JJC Fine Arts Theatre on Main Campus.

Our second production is Bent, running over two weekends: April 16-19 and April 22-25, 2020. Tony Award nominee for Best Play the year it premiered, this powerful drama is the first play centered on the Nazis’ use of the Holocaust to persecute and eliminate gays. Set in 1934 and ranging from a nightclub in Berlin to the famous concentration camp of Dachau, Bent unfolds as a tribute to the power of the human spirit as it depicts the defiance of two brave souls. Held in the intimate Black Box Theatre on Main Campus, and directed by Clay Kirkland as his final production prior to his retirement at the end of Spring Semester.
