Theatre Faculty Joe Janes and Andrea Dymond Collaborate on "Our Christian Nation"

Theatre adjunct faculty members Joe Janes '13 and Andrea Dymond will premiere their satirical two-act play Our Christian Nation at The Cornservatory on Friday, March 24. Janes wrote and Dymond directed the play which boasts over 40 characters performed by 15 actors and covers a wide range of story lessons that include traditional biblical tales intertwined with American history.

Tickets can be purchased at Eventbrite.
