OC Communication Department Presents “Waiting for Godot”

The OC Communication Department will present a tragicomedy by Samuel Becket titled “Waiting for Godot” on December 4, 5, and 6 at 8:00 p.m. in Judd Theatre.  The director of the three performances is Joel Barneche.  To purchase tickets follow this link:
THE STORY: Two dilapidated bums fill their days as painlessly as they can. They wait for Godot, a personage who will explain their interminable insignificance, or put an end to it. They pass the time talking. A wealthy man comes by, leading a male slave who does his bidding like a mechanical doll. Later the same man, now blind, comes back, and his slave is mute, but their relationship appears unchanged. Also, once each day a child comes by, sent by the unknown Godot, and evasively puts the big arrival off until tomorrow…
“…moving, often funny, grotesquely beautiful and utterly absorbing.” — NY Post.
(Suitable for ages 12 and up)
