Spring on the York College campus

Theatre

If all the men and women are merely players, this season the theatre division will explore the human condition as professional designers and directors join our students for shows based on true-life stories. From a queen who lost her head, to a composer with big Broadway dreams, to chance encounters with movie stars and Shakespearean characters, to women who changed the world, this season offers an in-depth look at what it means to be human.
