The Cerritos College Theatre Department will be holding auditions for their Summer One-Acts show.

The auditions will take place on May 10 at 6 p.m. and it will be held in their studio theater.

The show, which is entitled, “Caught in the Act,” will feature six different one-act plays which were written, directed as well as acted by students in the Theatre Department, according to Renée Bloch, promotions coordinator for the department.

Bloch also mentions that the plays will also take place in the studio theater in order to provide a more intimate setting.

Some plays that will be featured in the show include works by Bill Blush, Maria Lopez, Essence Brown among others. The featured plays carry working titles such as, “A Bad Idea,” “Last Summer” and “The Old and the Helpless.”

Regarding the idea of a student-run show, Bloch said, “This is a way to give theatre students an opportunity to branch out and explore directing, writing and designing.”

Three plays from the show will be chosen to be included in the department’s regular season, according to Theatre Department chair Georgia Well.

Well also mentions that the chosen plays will feature more elaborate details, such as more costume and set designs.

The Summer One-Acts can be seen on August 6, 7, 12, 13, and 14 at 8 p.m. General admission for the show is $10, but two tickets can be purchased for $15.
