Comedies in Concert: “The Space Race”
Comedies in Concert, directed by David Crespy.
Both of this summer’s Comedies in Concert plays were Finalists in the 2017 Region V Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. In this madcap original series, Mizzou actors, directors and playwrights read, rehearse and stage a performance in less than eight hours. Can they do it? Without losing lines, props, costume pieces and their minds?!
7:00 pm: June 27 “The Space Race,” by Erin Nelson, is an absurdist romp in the Apollo 11 “hoax” as government officials pretend to be Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins in a bizarre recreation of the space flight that put the astronauts on the Moon.
