West Coast alumni and supporters of the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department are gathering for a Columbia Theatre Alumni Social on Wednesday, February 20, at the award-winning Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles. Columbia College Theatre folks from the Los Angeles area are invited to socialize, reminisce, and network with fellow creatives at the event, which starts at 7 PM. All proceeds from the $15 registration fee will directly support the Columbia College Theatre Department. For more information, click here.
The Columbia Theatre Alumni Social is hosted by Columbia College alum Michael Matthews ’99, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s BA Program in Acting. Matthews is resident director at Celebration Theatre and is the director of its current production, Born to Win, which opens February 15 and runs through March 31. Matthews’ cohost is former Columbia College Theatre Department student Michael A. Shepperd, Celebration’s artistic director. Celebration Theatre is located at 6760 Lexington, Los Angeles.
The Columbia Theatre Alumni Social is organized by Columbia College Chicago’s Development and Alumni Relations office, which last October partnered with the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department to offer the first-ever Columbia College Theatre Reunion Weekend at the Getz Theater Center of Columbia College.
