Student-led Rehearsal Room C to stage “The Normal Heart”

Rehearsal Room C’s production of “The Normal Heart”, a 1985 play by Larry Kramer, begins November 21.

Directed by student Kevin Dew, “The Normal Heart” offers an intimate perspective on the AIDS epidemic in America through the eyes of those who lived it and worked to heal the community.

Rehearsal Room C, a student-led theatre organization founded in 2007, is open to all students. The group stages two to three productions annually, and each production is funded by Oglethorpe’s Student Government Association.

Rehearsal Room C selects the shows they perform based on proposals by aspiring student directors, who must submit a budget overview, a design concept, the technical team that will be involved, and a vision for the directorial approach.

“It is probably good that we as students have to work within a limited budget,” admits Dew. “It is a good learning experience.”

See the production at Oglethorpe’s Conant Performing Arts Center on November 21-23 at 8 p.m. and November 24 at 2 p.m. General admission tickets are free and may be reserved online. See all Oglethorpe arts events at
