Staging Change: Playwriting Students at Millennium Park

Plays by three Columbia College Chicago playwriting program participants will be presented in staged readings at Millennium Park April 19-21 at 7:30 p.m.

The presentations are part of In The Works: A Theater Lab Series where audiences have a chance to sit on the stage of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion to experience works in development by local theater artists.

Presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, in partnership with the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, and the Columbia College Chicago: Playwriting Program, Staging Change, consists of three evenings of new works by Columbia College Chicago playwriting students selected by Assistant Professor and Playwriting Coordinator Lisa Schlesinger and Professor Brian Shaw.

The three full-length plays portray people lost and the ramifications of finding them again, old secrets surfacing in the midst of a new crisis, and a look at the underside of Chicago most of us seldom, if ever, see.

The following Columbia faculty and staff are participating in the production: Dawn Renee Jones, Assistant to the Chair, (performing); Brian Shaw, Professor, (performing); Tom Mula, Senior Lecturer, (directing and curating); Stephanie Shaw, Senior Lecturer, (directing); Lisa Schlesinger, Assistant Professor, (curating)


Tickets are $15 and are available by calling 312-742-8497.
