Auditions Open for Good Fortune: A Cautionary Tale
Students and community members can now audition for Good Fortune: A Cautionary Tale, directed by Brian Fruits with Julie Giampaolo as designer coordinator and collaborating faculty member.
Let go from her job in the middle of the pandemic, Tarin spends her last $150 to be "certified" online as a fortune teller specializing as a "Finder," thinking she can scam money out of people who have it to burn. One day, a desperate father contacts her to find his missing daughter. Tarin makes up a vision and three days later, the daughter is found, alive and unharmed. News of the find spreads and Tarin, figuring she got lucky, leans into the new interest. Soon, many parents are clamoring for her guidance. One by one, she makes up stories and one by one, the children are found. Tarin begins to wonder if she really does have a gift - until she meets one mother whose child never turns up.

What Will I Learn?
In addition to courses that cover every aspect of the theatre discipline, and which transfer to a four-year university, JJC students get an immersive practical theatre experience with several productions held every academic year. This is a comprehensive program for those interested in acting, directing, design and any other aspect of theatre.
What is Unique About Our Theatre Program?
One of the most unique benefits the theatre program offers JJC students is the opportunity to act in a major role or a be a technician who designs or leads a team in the backstage areas. Typically, in four year programs, these opportunities are available to upperclassmen first, then underclassmen. JJC theatre transfer students who have acted in our productions or designed in our program then have an advantage over other students at a four year institution. This advanced preparation has led them to successful careers and numerous professional opportunities.
All JJC theatre performances are open to the public, with a subscription program also available for audience members.
