Mr. Burns A Post-Electric Play

Afrikaans word of the week: Bromponie – It is a scooter that you drive around with.

Hey All! Welcome back to MC Voices and what a semester it has been! Thank you for sticking with us and sharing in our student life at MC. Good luck on the rest of your semester and I hope to see you soon.

For my last blog this semester, I wanted to end on a high note and invite you to come and see Mr. Burns A Post-Electric Play. “It explores what it would be like to take a TV show and push it past an apocalypse, to see what happens. A group of apocalyptic survivors, when they’re not protecting themselves from raiders, pass the time recalling and retelling stories. One story in particular is “Cape Feare,” an episode from the television show The Simpsons. Through the survivors, the play also examines how the story has changed after seven years. Things get even weirder when, 75 years later, the reenactments have become more elaborate and distorted due to a variety of cultural references and callbacks from earlier scenes. Don’t miss the interesting take of one of TV’s classic shows.”     ( http://mcblogs.montgomerycollege.edu/reppac/mr-burns/ )

Madlene Nel

One part student and one part friend, two parts explorer and four parts drama queen. When you put it all together you’d have a nice apple pie and I just made myself very hungry.

My name is Madlené and I am from South Africa. I have been privileged enough to be able to experience the American culture and get to know a variety of amazing people living here. I enjoy travelling and discovering new places but above all I love meeting new people and learning about their culture while sharing mine as well.

In my free time I enjoy reading a good book or two and of course I am addicted to Netflix (Not my fault . . . it’s those 10 seconds they give you to choose whether you want to go on with the show or stop and I seem to miss clicking the stop button every time). I love writing songs and performing in front of others. Over the weekend I like hanging out with my friends, going to see theatre performances and discovering new places to hike, eat or just to have fun.

 I am majoring in Performance Theatre and want to pursue a career in Musical Theatre.

I am excited to share my college experience with you and I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
