Club Greg

Filmed in Center Stage Theater.

​This Year As Elegy by Jenny M Chu

Watch the Performance

The Act One Drama Club, collaborating with the Forsberg Art Gallery’s fall 2020 exhibition of A Quiet Stand, perform Jenny M Chu’s prose poem, This Year As Elegy.  This spoken word recording of Chu's poetic reflection on the turmoil of the past year is interpreted by club members Nina Shaw and Francisco Santana with Jessica Tawczynski’s, Our Father (featured in A Quiet Stand and now on permanent display at LCC), as visual accompaniment to the recording.

Theater for Social Justice

See the Presentation

A presentation for Community Conversations on 2/18 at 12 noon. How do we use Applied Theater in community-based education as a tool for social change? This question will be addressed by the Act One Drama Club who will demonstrate techniques established by Brazilian theater activist and director, Augusto Boal.  His work has been a powerful force internationally in helping people to understand and resolve their personal and communal oppressions through theatrical play and performance with the purpose of creating empathy, understanding, and true societal change.

If you don't think you are ready for auditions or feel like it is too big of a time commitment, think about becoming involved in our Act One Drama Club that produces our performances.

About the Drama Program

Drama at Lower Columbia College offers courses designed to provide students with an understanding of the theatre and an appreciation of theatre, acting, technical theatre, and production experience through performance. Students develop the ability to express themselves in many ways: acting on stage, seminar discussion, play analysis, review writing, script interpretation, kinesthetic expression, and technical proficiency in set, costume, and light design.

One play is presented each quarter during the academic year. Participation is open to all students, college employees and members of the local community.

Students interested in acting can complete an associate degree or begin studies to transfer to a baccalaureate program. Drama courses can also be an important supplement for those who plan to major in the humanities or social sciences.


Tickets available online and at Rose Center Box Office one hour prior to performance.

$10 - General Audience
