TCC South Presents ‘The Vibes are Immaculate: A Short Play Series’

FORT WORTH, Texas — The Vibes are Immaculate: A Short Play Series will feature performances of two plays at 7:30 p.m. March 28-30 at Tarrant County College South in the Joe B. Rushing Center for the Performing Arts, 5301 Campus Drive 76119.

In POOF! by Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage, a housewife surprised by the spontaneous combustion of her abusive husband realizes she has a life to reclaim. In Rich Orloff’s Playwriting 101: The Rooftop Lesson, an instructor lectures on playwriting using the live example of a would-be jumper and the Good Samaritan trying to save him.

Drama Instructor Lindy Benton-Muller, the director, values the importance of choices made by the characters. She also enjoys the fun that is poked at playwriting, which is covered in Theater Appreciation classes.

Kevin Hartung plays the Jumper. The Good Samaritan is portrayed by Pablo-Strickland-Jaramillo, and Esperanza Alvarez plays the Teacher. In POOF! Danie Davis is Loureen, and Rodeisha Moore plays Florence.

Admission is $6 for the public, $3 for non-TCC students and senior citizens, and free for TCC faculty, staff and students.

The plays are produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. and contain adult language and themes.
