Jones Theatre Company to present Cirque de Variété

POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — College of the Ozarks Jones Theater Company will present Cirque de Variété on April 25 and 26, at 7:30 p.m., in the Jones Auditorium. Cirque is an annual production that allows students with a variety of talents to perform while gaining valuable art and entertainment experience.

This year’s Cirque de Variété presents the work students have accomplished this semester in acting, choreography, construction, directing, dance, voice, lighting design, and stage management.

“Cirque de Variété is a student driven and produced variety show,” said Lisa Young, associate professor of theatre. “In this instance, the stage becomes the ultimate classroom for students to broaden their knowledge in multiple areas of the theatre experience."

History of Cirque de Variété

This annual event started in 1994 when College of the Ozarks first introduced the music theatre major. The purpose of the event is to provide students a unique opportunity to demonstrate their talents, abilities, and skills in the theatre arts.

The event is open to students, faculty, staff, and the public on a first come, first served basis. Admission is free and no reservations are accepted.
