Theater major Natasha Lopez said, “This is going to be a great play, one with many surprises. I encourage everyone strongly to come and watch the play.”

The opening night for “Durang, Durang” will be on March 1 at 8 p.m. on the main stage of the Burnight Center Theatre.

In case you miss opening night, the play will be going on March 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9 at 8 p.m. The final showing will be on March 10 at 2 p.m. The tickets will be sold at the door.

“There will be many surprises throughout the play. You can expect many secrets to be revealed if you watch the play,” said Natasha Lopez, who is participating in the production. The cast strongly recommends for everyone to view the play.

“Durang, Durang” will be presented for the first time at Cerritos College. It is a comedy that is made up of four, one-act plays that all build up to be a parody of other plays.

Trevor Bishop will be the director for the play.

“There will be a lot of weird moments and all of the acts are different, you’re in for a good laugh,“ said theater major Viviana Gallo. ”She will be on stage the entire show as different characters throughout the night.”

Auditions were held during the first week of the semester.

There will be a preview of the play on Thursday night, as they will be getting ready for opening night.

Business major Alejandra Ortiz said, “I enjoy going to all the plays hosted by the Theater Department from Cerritos College, so I am looking forward to attending this one. After a long day a school I will look forward to watch(ing) the play and get a good laugh out of it.”

The Actors have been practicing their roles for about two months, and even practice on their free time to present a great play.
