Successful Run for Travesties!

Successful Run for Travesties!

What a successful and fun show! The cast and crew brought their quirky humor and acting chops to the stage for MCCT’s production of Tom Stoppard’s Travesties. MCCT could not have performed this absurdist comedy without the help of our community of volunteer artists, designers, and sponsors.

Special thanks to Oddball Fermentables, Sherwood Oaks Christian ChurchMonroe County Martial Arts, Ken Pimple & Jennifer Livesay, Taylor & Josh Bennett, William A. Henry, and Susan J Rautio-Dietz, PhD.

The Herald-Times wrote a review for Travesties, you can find a copy of the review HERE.
