    Drama Program to present 'BOOM'

    The Lamar State College Port Arthur Drama Program will present "boom" in three performances in November.

    Showtimes are Thursday, November 4 at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, November 6 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, November 7, at 2 p.m. All performances will take place in the Sam and Linda Monroe Performing Arts Center, 1500 Procter Street in Port Arthur, in the Black Box Theater.

    Admission is free to all patrons. The performance does contain some adult language and content.

    A grad student’s online “casual encounter” ad lures a sharp journalism major to his subterranean research lab under the pretense of a one-night stand. But when a major global catastrophic event strikes the planet, their evening takes on evolutionary significance and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. Will they survive? What about the fish in the tank? And who is that woman pulling levers and playing the timpani? An epic and intimate comedy that spans over billions of years, boom explores the influences of fate versus randomness in the course of one’s life and humanity as we know it. 

    The play was written by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb and is directed by Zach Dailey.

    The Drama Program is part of LSCPA's Commercial Music, Visual and Performing Arts Department.
