When: Feb. 10-12, 8 p.m. 2022
Dell’Arte’s Professional Training Program proudly presents Commedia Showcase: LIL MOJO RETURNS. FEB 10th thru 12th. “To Revolt against Escapism, we must return to our roots.” LIL MOJO RETURNS, created by the students of the 2021-22 Professional Training Program, is the zany farcical story of an uprising. The Zanni, the servant class of the Commedia Dell’Arte, have had enough of the corrupt patriarchal rule of President John D. Magnifico and his regime. His daughter Rosa (Lil Mojo), the people’s choice, is inspired to lead them to a new enlightened, joyous, and unified world society. President Magnifico, in terror that he is losing popularity, scratches desperately to maintain control. Meanwhile, Dottore runs down the economy, Capitano is mismanaging the Military Industrial Complex, and Ruffiana Rag is grappling with the country’s out of control social media! Masks, mayhem, live music, magical ethos, revolution, and madness abound in this parade of human folly and enthusiastic revolt. Must show proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test performed within 72 hours of attendance upon entry. Masks required.
Price: $20, $15 senior/student
