Plays, concerts, and cocoa: upcoming events for YC fine arts
In the last few weeks before the holidays, the campus community will be buzzing with fine arts activities. You’re invited to come join the applause. Upcoming performances will leave you wanting encores.
First up is a set of three one-act plays, presented by emerging directors (two students and one recent graduate). Directors Mitchell Roush, Patrick Clark, and Thomas Lichty have put together the program, which they’ve titled “Three comedies and a couch: an evening of comfortable comedy.” The performance runs just two nights: Friday, November 11, and Saturday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m. The performances will be held in Gurganus Hall. There is no cost for admission and no need to reserve seating.
Of note about the performance is that the one-act Roush is directing, “Quiet on the Set,” is also self-authored. He plans to seek publication for the piece after it has been performed.
On Sunday, November 13, the York College Concert Choir will perform their acapella repertoire at the Council Bluffs Church of Christ, in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The free concert begins at 6:30 p.m.
On Saturday, December 3, Nathan Towell will be giving his senior recital in the Prayer Chapel at 7:30 p.m.
Finally, don’t forget about the annual holiday favorite Cocoa and Carols. You will enjoy sharing the holiday spirit and hot cocoa with family and friends at this entertaining and high-energy performance presented by the York College Celebration Singers. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. December 8-10, and 2:00 p.m. December 11 in Gurganus Hall. Admission will be $5.
Director Amy Fraser says the musical theater program is fun for all ages and will feature a cast of Christmas characters (Frosty, Rudolph, and Santa included) that are sure to please. The box office opens November 28. Call 402-363-5617 to reserve tickets.
