WC wraps up semester with Theatre, Jazz, Opera Performances

Spring Opera 2017

Weatherford College is finishing up the spring semester with a slew of entertaining options in the Alkek Fine Arts Center.

This Thursday, retiring theatre instructor Nancy McVean and her drama students offer an evening of relief, distraction and fun for those preparing for finals. Join them at 7 p.m. for two short original plays written, directed and produced by WC students.

“They have been busy and now would like to present their own creation to all of you,” McVean said. “We need an audience and you need a break, so let’s get together and make some memories.”
