Theatre Columbus State presents ‘The Library’ Wednesday – Saturday

Columbus State’s theaterprogram will present their new play “The Library,” Wednesday, April 27 through Saturday, April 30 at 8:00 p.m., with a special matinee on Thursday, April 28 at 3:00 p.m.  All performances are in the Nestor Hall Auditorium and are free and open to the public.


In the play, after Caitlin Gabriel survives a deadly shooting at her high school, she struggles to tell her story to her parents, the authorities, and anyone who will listen. But some of the messages paint her in a different light. Inspired by—but not based on—the shootings at Columbine High School, The Library asks audience members to examine their relationship to the truth.


Active Shooter Training offered

To tie in with the stage production, Columbus State Police Chief Sean Asbury will be presenting his Active Shooter Seminar. It will answer questions such as: What should you do if an active shooter enters your classroom, office, or workplace?  This seminar provides options and a plan should you find yourself in this situation.  The presentation is conducted from the perspective of a potential victim, not responding law enforcement.  It focuses on what you can do to enhance your survivability before law enforcement arrives. 

In short, you will learn simple, highly effective strategies to increase your survivability during a crisis. The seminar will be held Thursday, April 28, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. in Nestor Hall Auditorium, prior to the afternoon matinee performance. It’s free to students, faculty and staff.
