NMSU?s American Southwest Theatre Company celebrates 30 years with public gala

Cloud Nine.jpg

It was a September evening in 1984. Local patrons filed into New Mexico State University?s old Hershel Zohn Theatre in anticipation of the season opener ? ?Crimes of the Heart,? a tragicomedy by Beth Henley. As the lights dimmed and the audience settled, the curtains opened on a new chapter for NMSU theatre arts.

This play served as the inaugural production for the American Southwest Theatre Company, which has now operated for more than 30 years as the resident company within NMSU?s theatre arts department in the College of Arts and Sciences.

In celebration of this lasting and thriving partnership, the organization will host ?ASTC Anniversary Gala and Theatricals,? at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, at the ASNMSU Center for the Arts.
