This is a powerful true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops.
This is a powerful true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. Adapted from the book by Keith Walker, the play shows each young woman before, during, and after her tour in the war-torn nation and ends as each leaves a personal token at the memorial wall in Washington.

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.
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.
