Julia Crouse, culinary arts, and Micheal Vega, nursing, act out an improvised scene. 

Getting students involved with aspects of the theatre department is the main goal of The Company Plus Theater Club, a new club at Kirkwood Community College. 

Instructed by Assistant Professor Shelly Ford, the club allows students to gain acting and technical skills along with discussing aspects of the theatre program at Kirkwood. 

For example, there are many students interested in getting more involved in the upcoming musical performances of “City of Angels.” 

These performances are student run and offer many opportunities to get involved. 

Meetings start off with announcements and upcoming events, then move into acting exercises and activities that get members onto their feet participating. Micheal Vega, nursing, said, “I like making new friends, field trips, and helping other students to enjoy theatre as much as I do.”  Along with acting, students can also learn and get involved with the technical aspects of the performance for example, lighting and sound. There is something for everyone to get involved in.

Dillan Mankowski, hotel management, said, “I love theatre and being able to entertain people.” 

All students are welcome to join regardless of their major and previous theatre experience.  Students meet on the Ballantyne Auditorium stage on Fridays from 3 - 4 p.m. 

For more information about joining or The Company Plus Theatre Club, contact Shelly Ford at, Cedar Hall 338.
