Theatre troupe to perform at Cottey on Oct. 22

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

The Moradokmai Theatre Troupe will take the stage in the auditorium in Cottey College's Haidee and Allen Wild Center for the Arts at 8 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 22, for a special performance.

Troupe members live in a rural community in Thailand, where they have built a home base for professional actors and a theatre school under the leadership of Khru Chang, a leading Thai film and theatre artist. according to a press release. Youngsters at the home grow up and learn traditional Thai theatre, music and dance and Western art forms, along with self-sufficiency -- growing their own crops, cooking their own food, building their own shelters, and living a simple, communal way of life, while embracing artistic innovation.

No admission will be charged for the performance, but the troupe will accept donations.

The Center for the Arts is located on the northeast corner of Austin and Tower streets in Nevada.
