College to present "Bank Job"

February 13, 2015 by Phil Major

Event Date: 
Sat, 02/21/2015 - 7:30pm

Just one simple bank job, how hard can it be?
This is the thought that propels the story in "Bank Job," a theatre production presented by the Weatherford College Fine Arts and Communications Department Feb. 19 through Feb. 21.
"Bank Job" debuted in February 2014 at the Amphibian Stage Productions Theater in Fort Worth, and WC drama instructor Nancy McVean was in the audience.
“I loved the production, and thought what fun it would be for my students to be a part of this exciting experience,” McVean said.
The production at WC will be the second time "Bank Job" has been produced for an audience.
Written by John Kolvenbach, "Bank Job" is the story of two brothers, Tracey and Russell, who attempt to strike it rich in armed robbery.

Weatherford College plans Messiah performance

The much anticipated Weatherford College choir concert, selections from Handel’s Messiah, is scheduled Monday, Dec. 1, in the Alkek Fine Arts Center.
