October 6, 2017 – Aurora, CO – The Theatre Department at the Community College of Aurora (CCA) will collaborate with Phamaly Theatre Company to present an original production, “VOX: Under Construction,” a series of original short plays and sketches centered around the subject matter of perceptions of disability.
“It is the mission of the CCA Theatre Department to highlight people in our community and share their voice and perspective,” said Stacey D’Angelo, Director and Performing Arts Coordinator of the CCA Theater Department. “That is why I am so excited about this collaboration with Phamaly. The performers have overcome many obstacles and will continue to do so. I am honored to have the opportunity to be in the company of this cast and thrilled to share their voices on our stage.” D’Angelo is directing “Vox” along with three others.
Actors will share their stories in an open, honest and fun live theater performance, giving voice to those who are often rendered voiceless, stigmatized, and marginalized by society.
The American Community Survey estimates that in 2013-2015 approximately 12.6 percent of the population in the Untied States has a disability. “We are excited to bring back VOX after a two year hiatus, “said Regan Linton, Phamaly Theatre Company’s Artistic Director. “Collaborating with the students and leaders at CCA will add an entirely new dimension to the production – empowering students, fostering artistic growth and establishing cross-community dialogue.”
