SUBJECT: JONES THEATRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTS CIRQUE DE VARIETE
By: Austin Plummer
College of the Ozarks Theatre Department will present Cirque de Variete on April 29 and 30, at 7:30 p.m., in the Jones auditorium. Cirque is an annual production that allows students with a variety of talents to perform for their fellow students and the public while gaining valuable art and entertainment experience.
Different from all past performances, the 2013 Cirque will incorporate more people and feature various solo and duet performances. Students enrolled in classes such as stagecraft and lighting design also work to fill multiple roles in preparation for Cirque.
"Not only is Cirque an entertaining and family-friendly variety show, it is very personal because it created and performed by students for students,” says Mathew Matney, student choreographer for the event. “By far, it is my favorite of the productions we do on campus because it is a learning tool for the theatre students and all involved."
Students will be allowed priority seating for the student-prepared event; remaining seats will be available to the public free of charge. For more information, contact the Theatre department at (417) 690-2466.
