Well, to answer the question is quite simple…MUCH! However, as most settle down from taking their final exams, there are two opportunities to “take a break” from the stress of studying. First event occurs is this evening at 7:30pm, when Kellogg Community College’s Opera/Musical Theatre Workshop Ensemble presents…MUSICAL MADNESS!
Students from Kellogg Community College’s Opera/Musical Theatre Workshop will perform select semi-staged scenes from some of the best known and beloved operas and Broadway shows on the stage at First Presbyterian Church of Battle Creek (downtown). The performance starts at 7:30pm in the Fellowship Hall and is free and open to the public.
Scenes to be presented include selections from “Little Shop of Horrors,” Jekyll & Hyde,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Tick, Tick… Boom!,” Handel’s “Acis and Galatea” and Mozart’s “Cosi fan tutte.” Also included will be dramatically staged classical art songs by composers including Edvard Grieg, Richard Hageman, Jules Massenet and Giovanni Paisiello.
Our performance will also be streamed live via LiveStream. You may access the Livestream site by logging onto: http://new.livestream.com/accounts/6231632/events/2595454
Your next opportunity to take a break from the high pressure of academia is on this coming Friday, Dec. 13th (Yes, Friday the 13th….) When members of the KCC Theatre program presents their end of semester “Mich-Mash” event.
Kellogg Community College theater students will present several theatrical scenes, songs, one-act plays, a short film and more as part of the College’s semiannual fall Mich-Mash event beginning at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13 in the Davidson Center Auditorium.
There you have, not ONE, but TWO opportunities to chill out and have a great time this week.
Best of Luck on your final exams!!!!
