Mercer County Community College production explores facets of human nature in unique collaboration


Audiences are in store for a unique experience for the senses and the mind when the Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC) multiple award-winning theater and dance programs present “The Seven Deadly Sins,” Nov. 17-19.

“The Seven Deadly Sins” features four original, one-act plays and three dance numbers designed to allow students to explore the fun and dark sides of human nature. The performance is a unique collaboration with professional artists from Passage Theater, Moving Productions, New York City playwrights, and area playwrights.

“What I love about this project – its concept – is that I can give many creatives an opportunity to make new work: choreographers, directors and playwrights,” said Jody Gazenbeek-Person, theater and dance coordinator at MCCC. “This production takes you all over the map – there are ideas that will explode the mind.”

Performances for “The Seven Deadly Sins” will be Friday, Nov. 17 and Saturday, Nov. 18, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 19, at 1:30 p.m. at MCCC’s Studio Theater, adjacent to the college’s Kelsey Theatre on the West Windsor, N.J., Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. Tickets are $20-$22; visit or call 609-570-3333 Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.- noon.

Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible, with free parking next to the theater.
