“Nice People Dancing to Good Country Music” by Lee Blessing balances the struggles of running a bar in Houston while navigating the pit-falls of a blended family. Eva June has left her husband in Minnesota to run a bar in Texas with Jim. But Jim gets more than he bargained for when Jason, Eva June’s 15 year-old son, and Catherine, Eva’s niece who has recently been sent on “retreat,” come to visit for the summer. Add to the mix Roy, the amorous local cowboy determined to get a dance with Catherine “even if she is an ex-nun,” and you’ve got an explosive situation. “This show has a little something for everyone,” says director John Loprieno, “slap-stick comedy, a budding romance between an ex-nun and a young cowboy and, of course, nice people dancing.” Presented in a thrust setting in the Studio Theatre, this production offers many challenges for Moorpark College students. According to Loprieno, “The Summer program is designed to give students a full-range of experiences in the Theatre Arts including: marketing, set and prop construction, wardrobe, make-up, running crews and, of course, performance. We’re having a growing number of local High School students participating in our summer program. This is a great way for them to check out the facilities and all Moorpark College has to offer!”
