Theatre and Dance
Theatre and Dance occupies a central place in Wooster's cultural life and draws on the creative energies of many students, both majors and non-majors. Each season offers students opportunities to develop their skills as writers, performers, directors, designers, technicians, or dancers. Wooster offers a broad base in the liberal arts on which to build a theatre and dance focus on the artist/scholar model. That model informs the department's wide-ranging production season and course offerings. The small college atmosphere provides a chance for close interaction with faculty from all departments and gives many students the chance to participate in both Freedlander and Shoolroy Theatres on campus.
Latins in La-La Land by Migdalia Cruz, directed by Jimmy A. Noriega
Latins in La-La Land is about fame, fortune, and murder. The action takes place in two interweaving time periods: 1944 and 1989. The past is set at a dinner party in the Hollywood mansion of silent film star Ramon Novarro, while the present takes its inspiration from the infamous Menendez brothers, two Beverly Hills siblings who murdered their wealthy parents in their home.
This world premiere mixes the glamour of the silver screen with dark humor, friendship, love, passion, and betrayal. Contains adult themes and language. Intended for mature audiences only.
