Greensboro College Theatre Presents "It Stops Here" Sept. 3-6
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro College Theatre presents "It Stops Here," a drama about sexual assault written and directed by Michaela Richards '16, Sept. 3-6, 2015, in the Gail Brower Huggins Performance Center in Odell Building on campus.
Performances are 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Sept. 3-5, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 5-6. Tickets are $10 adults, $8 seniors/students (prices include sales tax), and can be reserved by calling 336-272-7102, ext. 5242, or emailing tickets@greensboro.edu.
Richards, a theatre education major, wrote the 1-hour play to foster awareness and discussion of sexual assault on college campuses today.
The play uses such vignettes as personal accounts, scenes, and a game show to present information about this topic. Although portions are humorous, this play contains information about sexual assault and violence that may be triggering to survivors.
Greensboro College's Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.
The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.
For more information, contact department chair David Schram, Jefferson Pilot Professor of Theatre, at 336-272-7102, ext. 5243, or email schramd@greensboro.edu.
