The Visual, Performing and Media Arts Department hosted “Saturday Night in the City,” a rock musical showcase, on Saturday, Nov. 17 and Sunday, Nov. 18 in the Studio Theatre of the Performing Arts Center.
Before the show started, audience members were invited to participate in a theater warm up exercise called “Zip, Zap, Zop.” Following the interactive warm up, audience members took their seats to enjoy the showcase, performed by some of the College’s theater students.
Following the performance, audience members were invited on stage to meet the performers.
Diana Barrueto, a theater major who participated in the musical, said, “The workshop increased my confidence and helped me believe in myself. I am happy I was casted for this musical cabaret.”
Auditions for the College’s plays and musicals are open to all currently-enrolled MCC students, faculty and staff members. Auditions will be held Dec. 4-6 at the Studio Theatre. For more information regarding the MCC theater program, or upcoming shows contact, AMitacchione@middlesexcc.edu.
