Upon his escape from Troy and on his way to found Rome, Dido meets the Carthaginian Queen, Dido. Will he stay or will he go? An ambitious music-theatre duet of two rarely seen classics, one a tragic opera, the other a dramatic tragedy.

When Erin takes a #gaschamberselfie, it goes viral--and so does she. Her job offer gets rescinded, she's not allowed to go to class, and her family and friends abandon her. Everyone that is, except for Claudia, her best friend, who hatches a plan to confront Erin's anonymous online trolls. TAR AND FEATHER examines public shaming in the digital age. How close are any of us to a fall from grace? And how does a well-intended person transform into a troll? No admission charge. Mature content.

In many ways, the center of Westmont’s theatre program is The Fringe – our annual celebration of devised, new, original, or otherwise previously unseen work that culminates every theatre season at the college. Last year’s Fringe featured over 25 original pieces of theatre, dance, film, art installations, and solo performance, and included over 80 Westmont students, and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever! A one-of-a-kind event that is not to be missed. Really. $10 Daily General Admission, $7 Students, Seniors and Children. All Festival Passes available for purchase.

*Collaboration B302
Devised and Performed by Lindsey Twigg and Danielle Draper
