LSC-Montgomery’s theater staging ‘Somebody/Nobody’
The theater season at Lone Star College-Montgomery will open with the off-beat comedy “Somebody/Nobody” by Jane Martin.
Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11-13. There will also be a 2 p.m. show Oct. 13. All shows are held in the main stage theater of the Performing Arts Center at 3200 College Park Drive in Conroe.
“ ‘Somebody/Nobody’ takes a hard, but hilarious look at what the acquisition of fame does to both body and soul,” said Tim Campbell, an associate professor of drama at LSC-Montgomery. “Any human being who has secretly longed to see his or her name in lights will recognize the outrageous behavior of Martin’s quirky characters.”
The show contains adult situations at a PG-13 rating and follows teen movie star Sheena Kenner, who wanted to be famous but now hates anyone looking at her.
Tickets cost $5. The college also offers season tickets for $40. Season ticket holders receive program recognition and reserved seating.
