Spring Quarter theater production auditions next week

Poster artAuditions are being held for Theatre Columbus State’s Spring Quarter production, Sexual Perversity in Chicago by David Mamet. The auditions will be held in Nestor Auditorium at 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, March 5 and 6.

The plot of this 60-minute play involves two male office workers, Danny and Bernie, who are on the make in the swinging singles scene of early 1972 Chicago.  After much comic drama, the two men end as they started, talking a good game in the local bar.

Because the play contains vulgar language and sexual content intended for adults, students who audition must be at least 18 years of age.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, but prepared monologues are welcome. If cast, students are required to register for THEA 180 Theatre Practicum
for the Spring Quarter.


5k Run and Walk supports student textbook scholarships

logoThe Cougar Challenge 5K run/walk, to be held Saturday, April 28, will have special appeal to Central Ohio runners because it will take place on a unique venue--the picturesque Bridgeview Golf Course located on Agler Road next to Alum Creek. The rolling 5K (3.1-mile) course will take runners over course fairways on a path that will provide a few climbs, fast grassy downhills and a flat finish around the driving range. The looping course is also spectator friendly.

The race, sponsored by the Staff Advisory Council of Columbus State, supports book scholarships for Columbus State students.

Enjoy a spring morning "on the green" by taking on the Cougar Challenge to run, walk and raise money for book scholarships.

Registration is now open!

Original play commemorating Titanic premiers Wednesday!

Possibly the last photo taken of the Titanic, as she left Queenstown, Ireland, April 12, 1912

April 15, 2012, marks the 100th anniversary of one of the greatest tragedies ever to occur on the open seas—the sinking of the Titanic. Sailing on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England, 2,200 passengers and crew were heading for New York when, just four days later, the luxury liner collided with an iceberg. Only 700 people survived.

Frank Barnhart, instructor in Theater, has researched the archives and culled stories of the survivors to create an original play, which will premier next week. Titanic – A Retrospective will be presented in Nestor Hall Auditorium as a single, 90-minute act with no intermission. It runs February 29 through March 3 at 8:00 p.m. nightly with an extra 3:00 p.m. matinee on Thursday, March 1. Admission is free.
