C.O.D. LIVE “Another One Bites the Dust”

Friday, May 18th at 8:00 pm

Location: The Pollock Theater (on the campus of College of the Desert)

Tickets: $5 C.O.D. Students / $7 General Admission

(Palm Desert, CA) – Things are getting a bit “sketchy” on the campus of College of the Desert as the C.O.D. Dramatic Arts Company prepares to close out the academic school year with a raucous night of original sketch comedy, music, and dance. The cast of C.O.D. LIVE returns for a second year to the Pollock Theatre for ONE NIGHT ONLY in what promises to be the rowdiest theatre going experience of the year!

The show features original sketch comedy (written by directors Noemi Villela Dean and Tres Dean), comedic tributes to George Carlin and the cast of HEE-HAW, as well as special musical and dance performances featuring the students of College of the Desert.

Learning how to perform sketch comedy and captivate audiences while portraying outrageous characters in outrageous situations is a challenge for any actor,” says C.O.D. Instructor and Co-Director, Tres Dean.

Co-Director and writer, Noemi Villela Dean, believes this style of show brings out the best in performers. “It is a fast-paced, fly by the seat of your pants, environment and process,” she says. “The cast members are forced to throw themselves into their characters and fully commit to their given circumstances.”

The ensemble cast consists of current C.O.D. theatre students Jennifer Kiehl, Doug Newton, Elana Sanchez, Ivan Ortega, Anthony Gomez, Austin Schroeter, Megan Camacho, Ashton Loyo, Danika Valenzuela, Natasha Garcia, Liridona Leti, Miguel Zandejas, Luis Salazar, Paulette Bartlett, David Loperena, Eddie Rodriguez, Aundrea Noffsinger, Florentino Carrillo, Hannah Mills, Ramon Martinez, Zeus Ley, and Diana Valle. The show also features performances by local sketch comedy veterans Jennifer Bennett and Nicole Willared. It is directed by Noemi Villela Dean and Tres Dean.

For ticket information and reservations, please call 760-776-7370. Tickets are $5.00 for C.O.D. students and $7.00 general admission. All proceeds benefit the C.O.D. Dramatic Arts Company. The performance is rated PG-13 for language.
