PPCC Theatre presents original works with a twist

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – August  25, 2021 – Pikes Peak Community College (PPCC) Theatre Department presents performances from a different point of view: ALTERNATIVE PERSPECTIVES, a collection of original works….in an alternative venue.

Written, performed, and directed by former and current PPCC students and faculty, ALTERNATIVE PERSPECTIVES is a collection of monologues from your favorite myths or well-known stories, but told from another, unexpected point of view. Encounter Peter Pan’s shadow, a statue in Medusa’s garden, Medea on a dating site, and several other unconventional narrators of stories you thought you knew. This collection represents some of the best of PPCC Theatre Department past, present, and future, and performed in the great outdoors behind the gorgeous new Studio West building. An alternative venue, if you will. Please be aware this production has adult content and may not be appropriate for small children. 

Since the performance will take place outside, bring some warm layers for those chilly Colorado evenings and your own camping chair or sturdy blanket to sit on. Some folding chairs will be available. Bathrooms are available inside but masks are required regardless of vaccination status. We will follow all PPCC official safety recommendations and protocols. Check-in 15-30 minutes prior to show start.
