From the scientific discoveries of Galileo to the rocky road of love, the Blinn College-Bryan Campus Theatre Arts Program will entertain audiences with dynamic drama during its 2019-20 theatre season.

The upcoming season will feature one main campus production each semester as well as the second installment of the Blinn-Bryan Theatre Troupe, an extension of the Blinn-Bryan Theatre Arts Program that engages in educational outreach opportunities in the Brazos Valley.

"A Life of Galileo"

The season begins with an adaptation of Bertolt Brecht’s "A Life of Galileo," Nov. 7-10. This thought-provoking play, originally written in German, was first performed in 1943 and examines 17 th-century scientist Galileo Galilei’s struggle between scientific discovery and religious dogmatism.

"Love/Sick"

The season will continue in the Spring semester with John Cariani’s "Love/Sick," a comedic and slightly twisted look at romantic relationships. Directed by Theatre Professors Greg Wise and Jean Daniels, "Love/Sick" will run April 16-19, 2020, and is composed of nine vignettes. The play traverses the ups, downs, and in-betweens of a myriad of couples trying to manage love in contemporary times.

Blinn-Bryan Theatre Arts Program Performances

To complement its 2019-20 performances, the Blinn-Bryan Theatre Arts Program continues its successful outreach program that brings live theatre and educational tools and exercises into local schools, community centers, libraries, and retirement communities. Now in its second year, the Blinn-Bryan Theatre Troupe consists of Blinn theatre students who create short, interactive theatre experiences to encourage cultural and collaborative exchange in the community. The troupe will conduct on-campus and community performances, which are made possible by a grant from the Eugene Edge III Charitable Trust.

The troupe’s offerings include three productions: "Toil and Trouble" by Lauren Gunderson, on-campus Oct. 16-17, "The Second Shepherd’s Play" edited by Adrian Guthrie, on-campus Dec. 5, and "Poof!" by Lynn Nottage, on-campus Feb. 19-20, 2020. Two community performances of "The Second Shepherd’s Play," a unique retelling of the Nativity story, will be held on the steps of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Historic Downtown Bryan as part of the city’s First Friday event on Dec. 6.
