When people think of Mines, the first thing that comes to mind is not usually performing arts (excluding those that think it is the Colorado School of Mimes). However, for those looking to nourish their creative side, there are many opportunities on campus to do just that.
Mines Little Theatre (MLT) is just one of many organizations that students can join to be a part of performing arts within the school. Each year, MLT puts on several performances for parents, faculty, students, and the Golden community.
This year, we can expect captivating performances of Arcadia (Directors: Daniel Renkert and Jordan Brothers) and Dracula (Director: Rachel Gregg), as well as the annual Rocky Horror Picture Show. The auditions for Rocky Horror Picture Show wrapped up on September 5th. This production will kick start the organization’s semester of performances. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is heavily back by oSTEM (Out in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) of Mines.
Auditions for the two other pieces took place on September 7th and 8th, with callbacks on the 9th. This fall, performances will take place in the Voss Auditorium and American Mountaineering Center, which is a new location for MLT Fall shows.
To see what Mines Little Theatre is doing next, keep a look out for the Fall Plays, Dracula and Arcadia, showing Nov. 3, 4, 10 and 11, 17, and 18, at the American Mountaineering Center off Washington & 10th.
