November 04, 2019

The Delgado Community College Theatre Program announces their latest production, the contemporary comedy “Leveling Up” by Deborah Zoe Laufer.

“Leveling Up” is about three 20-something roommates, glued to their video games, struggling to balance their virtual worlds with the real world--especially when one of them lands a job with the National Security Agency launching actual drones and missiles, prompting online battles that have real consequences.

“Leveling Up” is directed by Kristin Shoffner. Students from the Delgado Theatre Program will perform the play.

The production staff includes scene design by James Means, lighting and sound design by Tom Dawson and costume design by Shelby Lynn Marie Butera.

The production will run one week only: Nov. 20 – 24. The play opens Wednesday, Nov. 20 at the Timothy K. Baker Theatre, 615 City Park Ave., first floor, City Park Campus. Curtain times for Wednesday-Saturday performances are at 8 p.m. and the Sunday matinee is at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $12 general admission; $10 Delgado students, faculty and staff; $8 for all area high school students with student group rates available. Thursday, Nov. 21 is Delgado appreciation night when all tickets for Delgado students, faculty and staff are only $8.  For online reservations, go to Eventbrite.
