A&E Calendar – Vol 53 Issue 13, May 18, 2018

AFA Thesis Exhibition

May 7-June 22; 1000 Building, Lobby

While other students study for their boring finals, the SCC’s Associate of Fine Arts studio class will be holding their first show on-site, sharing their hard work with the public who rarely get to see art from their peers. The show counts as their final exam, ironically enough.

Stephen Sondheim’s “Company”

7:30-10:30 p.m., May 18-19; 3-5 p.m., May 20; SCC Theater (1600 Building)

“Company,” the darkly-humored, seven-time Tony Award-winning production is wrapping up at SCC. “Company” narrows in on the lives of five married, divorced or soon-to-be-wed couples and their bachelor buddy, Bobby, who can’t hold a long-term relationship. Are people in committed relationships really happy? “Company” dives right into the eyes of marriage from the perspective of a single man. Ticket prices are available at companyatscc.brownpapertickets.com
