Theater Arts Program to Celebrate Women With Four Day Event

By 

Starting Monday, March 5, the HCC Theater Arts Program will present InterACTion Symposium: WOMEN with daily performances and discussions in the Lafayette Hall Performing Arts Center.The event is free and open to the public.

The mission of InterACTion is to use theater performance as a springboard for discussion among the various academic departments, programs and courses on campus. Theater Arts Program Coordinator Geoffrey Sheehan calls the event “critically important to the issue of women in our community.”

“The combination of professional artists and students makes for a very honest and unique event.” Sheehan said. “We’re (HCC) privileged to have an event where art, education and social issues meet and are celebrated by and for women within the community."

Highlights of the four-day event include Monday’s Blanca, a play by writer and performer Janis Astor del Valle and Wednesday’s “Women and the effects of advertising”, moderated by Assistant Professor of English, Ellie Bloom. The full schedule can be found below.
