Otherworld Theatre, a company founded and led by Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alumni, has two science-fantasy action productions coming up. On Friday, January 19, at 7:30 PM, the company presents Mortal Kombat: A Parody Staged Reading of the Cinematic Masterpiece, a spoof of the 1990s movie based on one of the bloodiest video games of all time.
The fight-packed performance is directed by Columbia College alum Tiffany Keane Schaefer ’12, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s Theatre Directing program, with fight choreography by alumnus Kai Young ’12, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s BA Program in Acting. Young is also in the cast, as are Columbia alums Kim Fukawa ’07, also a graduate of the Acting BA program, and Grace Gimpel ’12, a graduate of Columbia’s BA Program in Musical Theatre, as well as former student Bennett Decker Bottero. The performance takes place at the Nox Arca Theatre, 4001 N. Ravenswood, Chicago. For tickets, click here.
