Congratulations to the New Play Festival

The New Play Festival wrapped last weekend, and it was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who participated: the actors, playwrights, designers, directors, and audience members!

Do you have an idea for a play? Want to explore it, and maybe have it produced in the 2019 festival? Consider taking Matthew Salazar-Thompson's Playwriting class in Fall 2018. Keep checking the blog for more information.

On Sunday, March 11, Dr. Judy Bauerlein from CSU San Marcos attended the matinee performance of the Festival of New Plays. She was here as a representative from KCACTF (Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival) providing feedback, and her response was terrific!

Here's a picture of the talk-back:

Huge CONGRATULATIONS to the cast and crew of The Vagina Monologues

On Friday, February 23, students Ashleigh Bodie and Jessica Bravo, with Quike Moreno (above), produced and directed Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues at the Saville Theatre. The play went off without a hitch, and it was very well-attended. Funds were raised for Generate Hope, a non-profit organization that works with women who have been involved in sex-trafficking, a huge problem in San Diego.

The audience members were taken on a ride that was riotous, heartbreaking, sad, naughty, and above all, empowering. In the age of #metoo, this a welcome addition to the offerings at City College.

Great work, everyone!
