• Saturday, June 17, at 8 p.m.;

• Sunday, July 2, at 2 p.m.

Bug

Tracy Letts’ “Bug,” a psychological horror story, runs 8 p.m. June 16 to 18, 23 to 25, and 2 p.m. June 19 and 26 in the MacKenzie Fine Arts Center on the Henry Ford College main campus, 5101 Evergreen in Dearborn.

Tickets are $15, and can be purchased at theatre.hfcc.edu. The show contains violence and other adult content, and no one under 18 will be admitted.

A drug-addicted cocktail waitress, Agnes, who is hiding from her violent ex-husband, Jerry, is introduced to a paranoid veteran, Peter, by her lesbian biker friend R.C.

Bug Will Get Under Your Skin

"Bug"– a psychological horror story on stage through June at Henry Ford College — promises to get under audience’s skin.

Nominated for three Drama Desk Awards, the play was written by Tracy Letts, a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright.

Dr. George Popovich, HFC director of theater and director of the Virtual Theatricality Lab, will direct the college’s production. The play debuted at the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill, London, England on Sept. 20, 1996.

Bug

Sometimes theater can be wildly optimistic and happy, which isn’t a bad thing, but sometimes you need a punch in the throat to really enjoy high-end art and the play Bug will do just that. Written by award-winning playwright Tracy Letts, Bug is a psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. There are adult themes that are in the play so it may not be suitable for children under 18.

From Vintage Films to National Awards: Meet the Director Behind Theatre’s New Cutting Edge Technology

If you’re ever in Henry Ford College’s Virtual Theatricality Lab, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a lot of intricate technology that costs much more than the average college education. Above is an aluminum cage-like contraption with attached lighting fixtures. Huge green screens cover the wall and expensive looking projectors are on the racks. I try not to break anything as I look around.

The VTL Sells Out Shows!

There is a certain magic churning behind the scenes at HFC. It lies in the last door on the right in the northern corner of the Fine Arts Building. You have to go past the Sisson art gallery and the Pewabic pottery drinking fountain to find it. This is the VTL, or The Virtual Theatricality Lab, which offers students a niche for technology to excel and create a product that audiences will always remember. All of this has been made possible by Dr. George Popovich, the head of the program, and Alan Contino, a motion capture technician.

A Christmas Story HFC-style

The theater program at Henry Ford College put on a live production of the classic film, A Christmas Story, which ended its run this past weekend. The play was adapted from from Philip Grecian’s stage adaptation of the widely known movie written by Jean Shephard, Leigh Brown, and Bob Clark. The stage production is directed Judith Fletcher-Barber who works closely with Dr. George Popovich and many others in HFC’s theater program to make it unique to HFC. The student cast consisted primarily of current HFC students and others who have worked in various productions at the college before.

Three Dramas And A Comedy

By SUE SUCHYTA

Henry Ford College offers three dramas and a comedy for its annual student-directed One Act Festival, through June 28 at the MacKenzie Fine Arts Center.

Technical theater director Gerry Dzuiblinski said this year’s festival features four one-act plays, each about 30 minutes long, by established authors, that most audiences have not seen performed on stage.

“We’ve got a wonderful company of actors, technicians and directors who are working together to make sure not only their show works well, but that the entire ensemble and festival does,” Dzuiblinski said.
