Two stu­dent per­for­mances en­liven Novem­ber at Mont­gomery County Com­mu­nity Col­lege

The Mercury (Pottstown, PA) - - ARTS - From Di­ane VanDyke Mont­gomery County Com­mu­nity Col­lege

Two pro­duc­tions will be per­formed at Mont­gomery County Com­mu­nity Col­lege in Novem­ber by stu­dents in the The­atre Arts Pro­gram, Drama Club and West End Stu­dent The­atre.

On Nov 8 to 11, Montco stu­dents will per­form “We are Proud to Present a Pre­sen­ta­tion about the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the Ger­man Sud­west­afrika, Be­tween the Years 1884-1915” by Jackie Sib­blies Drury in the Black­box The­atre on the lower level of the Science Cen­ter on Cen­tral Cam­pus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell.

In the play, a group of ide­al­is­tic ac­tors gath­ers to re­hearse a re­cre­ation of the ex­tinc­tion of the Herero tribe at the hands of their Ger­man col­o­niz­ers. Even­tu­ally, the hor­rific past clashes with the good in­ten­tions of the present and what seemed a far­away place and time comes too close to home.

Re­main­ing per­for­mances are Satur­day, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. and Sun­day, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m.

On Nov. 15 to 17, “She Kills Mon­sters” by Qui Nguyen will be per­formed in the South Hall Com­mu­nity Room on Montco’s West Cam­pus, 101 Col­lege Drive, Pottstown. This comedic fan­tasy tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her child­hood home after the death of her teenage sis­ter. When Agnes finds her sis­ter’s “Dun­geons & Drag­ons” note­book, she be­gins a jour­ney of dis­cov­ery and ac­tion-packed ad­ven­ture. Full of homi­ci­dal fairies, nasty ogres and ‘90s pop cul­ture, the play of­fers a heart-pound­ing ho­mage to the geek and war­rior within us all.

Per­for­mances are Thurs­day, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m.; Fri­day, Nov. 16, at 12:30 and 7 p.m.; Satur­day, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m.
