Adams State University’s theatre program has officially started its first production for the community this year.
Dr. John Taylor directs, Nickel and Dimed. This production follows a girl’s experiences to see if she can live off of minimum wage.
This show has fantastic music to transition from one scene to another.
Logan Osborn, an electrician and one of the ushers for the opening night of the show said, “This show was great. I would love to go and see another production for this show. I am currently going next week to see it again.”
Nickel and Dimed was the best choice to open this season. It has parts that will get you on your feet and falling on the floor laughing.
The acting in this show is fantastic and the band, “Red, White, and Broke,” are great.
They bring laughter to the show and great music that will make you feel like you are in a bar listening to the songs. Its also has suspense in some parts that the audience will enjoy, as well as some foul language not suited for all ages.
Shawnie Abbott, the assistant box office manager for the theatre said, “I thought it was super compelling and truly relatable to us. I would absolutely see this show again. Therefore, I am seeing it two more times.”
This show will talk about things that relate to what working class citizens in America due to just make it in this world.
It gets right down to the issue of trying to live at minimum wage and having a place to live.
This reviewer believes that if the government would just listen to their people, like in this show, then we would be closer in having a stable society. This show is worth going to watch.
As you watch the show, you might find that either you had a situation similar to the main character or you are currently in the same situation. That is what makes this show one that will not be forgotten.
In this show, students talk about how college living is getting to be so expensive for them.
College students are having a rough time in just deciding what classes they need to take. When the government is not helping out as much as they should, that just puts a heavier load on the students to even afford to go to college.
This show is the best show that the theatre program has put on, mostly, because almost every person, in some way or another, can relate to what the characters are going through at this time in our societies lives.
Nickel and Dimed puts the audience in the show by having some of the characters go out into the audience so that it feels like the audience members are being noticed.
