The theatre department is putting on Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, a smaller black box show, tomorrow and Saturday. There is a total of four shows: one on Thursday at 6pm and the following three on Saturday at 2, 6 and 7:30pm. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults and can be purchased at the door.

“Think of it like a choose your own adventure,” theatre director Nikki Guckian said. “It’s sure to be a fun filled and energetic evening.”

The show is composed of various short scenes that were written by a group called the New York Neo-Futurists. Traditionally, there are a total of 30 scenes that are performed in the time span of an hour. All of the theatre 2, 3 and 4 students are involved in at least one scene that they prepared in class.

“I’m super excited to be a part of this show,” theatre 2 student and sophomore Madison Woodrom said. “This will certainly be one of the most outside of the box shows I’ve ever done.”

Each scene is numbered and the audience is expected to call out a number randomly. The students will then jump up and perform that scene accordingly, with very minimal set, props and costumes. Most of the scenes are humorous and the students have been instructed to put their own creative twists on them.

“With its outlandish monologues, crazy scenes and interesting progression this show is certainly going to be one I never forget,” Woodrom said.
