I love attending local college and university stage productions, partly because it’s such a wonderful reminder of my days as a theatre major – ah, the reassuring familiarity of Augustana College’s Potter Hall! - but also because the shows’ participants are generally involved with theatre because they truly want to be; with the possible exception of staff members, no one’s doing it just for the paycheck. (No one should ever be doing theatre for the paycheck, but that’s another issue entirely.)

A Freshman Talent Provides the Importance for Seeing "Earnest": "The Importance of Being Earnest" at Augustana College

Augustana College’s production of Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy of manners The Importance of Being Earnest is perfectly acceptable entertainment, rarely inspired but always watchable. Yet it has the enormous good fortune to feature one performance that shoots way past the acceptable and enters the realm of the extraordinary – David Cocks’ portrayal of the delectably devious John Worthing is the sort of riotously funny and brilliantly executed stunt that makes you more than eager for his next appearance; he’s so elemental to the show’s success that it’s nearly distracting when he’s not on stage. And here’s the kicker: This is freshman Cocks’ first appearance on the Potter Hall stage. The mind boggles at what may be in store for audiences over the next four years.

Since 1990, I’ve attended more than 25 plays at Augustana College, yet I’ve never seen one that made better use of the Potter Hall stage than The Laramie Project.

Augustana’s production of Storm & Stress (a.k.a. Sturm und Drang) is “an opportunity for local audiences to see a play that they will likely never see anywhere else,” said Jeff Coussens, director of the college’s Theatre Arts Program.

Augustana College Offers a First-Rate Exploration of Truth: "Rashomon"

What is truth? This is an age-old question, pondered by millions of people over the centuries. According to the story of Rashomon, truth lies in the eye of the beholder. As the wigmaker in the story says, “People see what they want to see, and say what they want to hear.” Unlike many other treatments of the question of truth, Rashomon does not expose truth as absolute; it explores truth as a constantly shifting abstract idea, based solely on the perceptions of humans.
