WOOSTER, Ohio — The College of Wooster's Theatre and Dance Company will present its annual fall concert Nov. 21-23 in the round in Freedlander Theatre (329 E. University St.). Performances, which are free and open to the public, begin at 8:15 p.m. each evening, but seating is limited so advanced reservations are suggested. All tickets are general admission.

Directed by Kim Tritt, professor of theatre and dance, this year's concert features sophomore stage manager Dani Gagnon and first-year assistant stager manager Lexi Musselman, along with eight student choreographers: seniors Amadi Washington, Shakera Blackmon, and Shannon McKnight; sophomores Bridget Brately, Emi Donato, and Emily Baird, and first-year students Madi Hunt and Emerald Rutledge.

"This performance showcases a wide variety of talent from students through their work in choreography, dance, and lighting design," said Gagnon. "Each piece brings a fresh approach and unique style to the concert as a whole, creating a multi-faceted viewing experience."

Also assisting with production are seniors Maria Janasz and Zoe Kopp-Weber, sophomore Leah Zavaleta, and first-years Annette Hilton and Sharron Osterman. In addition, a class taught by Dale Seeds will provide lighting design. The class consists of seniors Amadi Washington and Ruby Summers; juniors Zachery Lampkin and Sidney Martin; sophomores Emily Baird and Emi Donato; and first-years Hunter Ligo, Bridgette McBride, Sharron Osterman and Bailey Williams. In addition, Jody Tidwell will serve as technical director, and Charlene Gross, will handle costumes, hair, and makeup.
