CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – What do you get when you mix zany personalities with wacky situations, a woman on a journey of self-discovery, and a trip to Niagara Falls? You get Wonder of the World of course! John Tyler Community College’s Theatre Workshop class brings this dark, absurdist comedy by David Lindsay-Abaire to the stage in December for three performances, and the community is invited to join the fun. The shows will take place inside Hamel Hall, room H109, at the Midlothian Campus, located at 800 Charter Colony Parkway, on December 6 at 7:00 p.m.; December 7 at 3:00 p.m.; and December 8 at 6:00 p.m. Admission is free.
Wonder of the World, directed by Kerrigan Sullivan, associate professor of communication studies and theatre, and produced with permission from Dramatists Play Service, Inc., is recommended for mature audiences. For more information about these upcoming performances, contact Kerrigan Sullivan at email@example.com or 804-594-1498.
