Spring theatre series continues with the student-written and -directed “Tell Them Tomorrow”

The Department of Theatre Arts continues its spring 2021 production lineup with virtual readings of “Tell Them Tomorrow” on Saturday, Feb. 27, and Sunday, Feb. 28.

“Tell Them Tomorrow” is a story of the end of a college relationship. The fallout sparks moments of introspection for the protagonist, Lead, who faces multiple versions of themself along the way to discovering who they are and who they want to be.

The play is written by Kevin Mischo ’21 (Theatre Arts) and directed by Dominique Torrez ’21 (Theatre Arts), making this the first fully student-produced show of the 2020-21 Theatre Arts season.

Mischo and Torrez are both leaders in the program. Mischo is a dramaturg who has worked on multiple productions and moderated talkback panels while at the College. In addition to directing work, Torrez was among a number of students who responded in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic by co-founding the Virtual Theatre Collaboration.
