Theatre department to stage ‘Jungalbook’

The Galveston College Theatre department will present “Jungalbook” on Thursday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 26, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 27, at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. in the Abe and Annie Seibel Foundation Wing on the Galveston College campus, 4015 Avenue Q, Galveston, Texas.

In this dramatization by Edward Mast based on the stories of Rudyard Kipling, Mowgli, the rescued child, grows up in the concrete jungle, raised on the streets and learns the rules of society from Baloo. Sherakhan sees the outsider as a threat and has a vendetta against Mowgli, but Bagheera, his secret protector, won’t let any harm come to the boy.

Mowgli grows up wild and unconcerned, believing he is just like everyone else and that the streets are his home. While he learns the laws of this modern jungle, Mowgli begins to understand his own identity and that he has no place in this society.

As tensions grow between Mowgli and Sherakhan, the boy must choose whether to disregard his society’s strict moral code or leave the only place he has called home.

Company members include Eva Arita, Daniel Bourque, Eddie Cobbs, Alyssa Gudz, Jade Killebrew, Daniel Maxey, Melina Moore, Andrea Parsons, Eric Scales and Wrath Sorrell.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain. The running time for each performance is approximately two hours with one 15-minute intermission.

Galveston College Theatre to present ‘The Revolutionists’

The Galveston College Theatre department will return to the stage this fall for a two-day run of “The Revolutionists,” a comedic quartet by San Francisco playwright Lauren Gunderson about four women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror (1793-1794).

The New Play Exchange describes “The Revolutionists” as a “grand and dream-tweaked comedy about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world.”

Gunderson, who was named “America’s Most Popular Playwright” by The New Yorker and the “Most Produced Playwright of 2017-2018” by American Theatre Magazine, takes the audience to 1793 Paris and the world of playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle who, according to the New Play Exchange, “hang out, murder Jean-Paul Marat and try to beat back the extremist insanity.”

Director is Liz Lacy, program coordinator for Performing Arts at Galveston College. Company members include Eva Arita, Marie Daban, Alyssa Gudz, Jade Killebrew, Kristopher Prodoehl, Eric Scales, Destiny Shute, Wrath Sorrell, Alice Sullivan, Omar Tashatsheh and Adi Teodoru.

This production of “The Revolutionists” is entered as a participating production in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, a national theater program involving 20,000 students from colleges and universities nationwide annually.

Show dates and times are Friday, Oct. 5, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 6, at 7:30 p.m. Performances are located in Room 207 on the second floor of the Galveston College Fine Arts Building.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain and admission is free.

For additional information, please contact Liz Lacy at (409) 944-1398 or llacy@gc.edu.
