This will be the drama department’s third production to compete in the KCACTF in the past five years.

The production is showing at the Cuesta College Performing Arts Center’s Experimental Theater: Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 10 and Feb. 11 at 2 p.m.

All proceeds will support student travel expenses at the KCACTF competition.
