Allen Community College Theatre Director Tony Piazza selects plays based on the talent he has in any given year.

This year’s group of theater students is so talented, he said, that it’s given him the opportunity to produce plays he’s long wanted to do. All three of its major productions will concern the challenging topic of love, because, as Shakespeare says, “The course of true love never did run smooth.”

An abundance of male theater students this year has enabled Piazza to stage the fall musical “Young Frankenstein” and then in the spring, William Shakespeare’s, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
