Theater Season Opens with Thomas Cole, A Waking Dream

Thomas Cole, A Waking Dream cast members offer a preview of the production's spectacular costumes, which were designed by MHC's Vanessa James. The play opens October 24 in Rooke Theatre.

The canvases of Thomas Cole are prized for the sense of heightened reality they convey—full of luminescent colors set off by malevolent shadows, and telling stories, at times, that grandly illuminate nineteenth-century thinking. These same themes—"heightened reality" and a dramatic plunge into the nineteenth century—are exactly what theatergoers can expect at the MHC theatre arts department's 2002–2003 season opener, Thomas Cole, A Waking Dream. This multimedia production, written and directed by Donald T. Sanders, tells the story, in verse, of Cole's life, work, and world. The play features period costumes made of multihued plastic and a fifteen-member cast composed of MHC faculty and students, members of the local community, and Five College students. A Waking Dream opens October 24 in Rooke Theatre. more>
