OCC's Touring Theatre Visiting Area High Schools

The Orange Coast College Theatre Department will present a free public performance of its touring theatre production, “Aftermath,” on Friday, March 21, in the Drama Lab Studio Theatre. The community, faculty, staff and students are invited to attend.

“Aftermath” is taking its show on the road to high schools for the next two months. The OCC Theatre Department sends actors to schools, community centers and public events as a part of a free community outreach effort. The project also provides valuable touring experience for OCC's theatre arts students.

Written by OCC theatre program alumnus Sean Wellengard, “Aftermath” focuses on the problem of bullying among young people. “The issue of bullying is very much in the public consciousness,” said Rick Golson, who teaches the touring theatre class. “We hope our production will help teach young people how to deal with this growing problem.”

High schools interested in booking a performance can contact Golson at 714-432-5640, ext. 6.
Golson has directed the 24-year-old touring program for the past eight years. Topics have ranged from saving the wetlands, victims of Hurricane Katrina and Iraq war veterans.
