Visions for the End of the World

LCC Theatre alum Scott Crandall performs his original experimental piece, Visions for the End of the World. Through poetry, image-centric stage work, and movement, the performance explores our historical and present relationships to Armageddon through a language of visions and prophecy. Framed as a pageant of a shipwrecked prophet's series of apocalyptic visions, it travels from energetic dance routines to desperate prayer to sea shanties to religious ecstasy. Visions was developed through an 18 month process of research, physical improvisation, writing, and sound composition. The performance runs approximately 35 minutes and will be followed by a talk back.

Part of the “Climate Change: Film, Fact, & Fantasy” series, January 23-28, a collaboration of LCC Performing Arts, Biology, Writing, and The Centre for Engaged Inclusion.

William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead

By John Heimbuch, Directed by John Lennox

Description: For those of you fed up with post-apocalyptic zombie shows, we give you a show of period zombies. Zombies in the day of William Shakespeare. Transport yourself to the backstage of the Globe Theatre with Bill and members of his acting troupe as they fight off the zombie horde that has taken over Elizabethan London. We are going more Shaun of the Dead with this production as opposed to serious, frightening blood and gore. It should prove to be a great deal of fun.

Performances: 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 21 through Sunday, June 25, LCC Outdoor Amphitheatre
