November 17-20, the Drama Department at Blue Ridge Community College is thrilled to offer the community a chance to see its production of Tracy Letts’ August: Osage County, a play the New York Times called in 2007, “flat-out, no asterisks and without qualifications, the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years.” From that auspicious beginning the play has gone on to garner numerous Tony Awards and the 2008 Pul…itzer Prize for Drama.

Although the central plot of a dysfunctional family falling apart in contemporary Oklahoma may sound depressingly familiar, Letts’ authentic characters and laugh-out-loud humor creates a play with the perfect blend of comedy and drama.

Neela Muñoz, frequent actor and director at Flat Rock Playhouse and North Carolina Stage Company, directs at BRCC for the first time, while local community theater actress Nancy Colangione plays the pill-popping matriarch, Violet Weston. BRCC’s drama director Jennifer Treadway, gracing the BRCC stage for the first time since starring in The Crucible in 2003, plays Violet’s oldest daughter Barbara, joined by other prominent community and student actors.

The play will be presented in the Patton Auditorium beginning at 7:30 p.m., November 17-19, and 2:00 p.m. on November 20. Cost is $5.00 for BRCC students, faculty and staff, and $7.00 for general admission.

Due to mature subject matter this play is not recommended for younger or more sensitive viewers.

To reserve tickets or get more info call 694-1849, email js_treadway@blueridge.edu, or visit leave us a message on our Facebook page.

DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW
NOVEMBER 18 – DECEMBER 4, 2011

Dear Friends / Family Members:

I am excited to invite you to one of the funniest shows I have ever been involved in!

I am about to proudly open in the North Carolina premiere of DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW at Asheville Community Theatre next weekend, starting Friday, November 18.

I am playing BINKY the ELF.

I would love to see you in the audience opening weekend when we have an event each performance:
Friday, November 18 – 7:30 performance – pre-show champagne reception
Saturday, November 19 – 7:30 performance – Sweet Saturday: pre-show chocolate delights
Sunday, November 20 – 2:30 matinee – after the show: “meet the cast” talk-back

Dashing Through the Snow is the latest Southern comedy from Asheville’s own playwriting trio Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. This show has quick one-liners, outrageous characters, and more Southern eccentricity than a maiden aunt’s ceramic rooster collection.

It sure would be fun to see you at the show!

Reserve your tickets today!
