MCC Drama Initiative Hosts Local Theatre Companies

The Sixth Act, Monroe Community College’s drama initiative is sponsoring its first event of the 2005-2006 academic year, "Rochester’s Theatre Community." 

On Thursday, September 29, The Sixth Act will host representatives from at least nine local theatre companies—including Geva, Shipping Dock, and Blackfriars—who will meet with MCC faculty and students to discuss their missions and philosophies, their 2005-2006 seasons, any special opportunities they can offer MCC faculty who bring students to see one of their plays, and any internships or other opportunities they can offer MCC students directly.

The event will be held Thursday, September 29, 2005 from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Black Box Theater, Building 4, on the Brighton Campus. All students and faculty are welcome. Promotional literature will be distributed, and light snacks will be served. Please direct queries to Maria Brandt at "" or 292-3394.

In its second year, The Sixth Act seeks to promote an awareness and appreciation of drama in academia and in the community. It is currently led by faculty members and students drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and departments.
