This collaboration with the Multimedia program and, for the first time, our dance students, gives a glimpse into what is the future of performance at L.A. Mission College."

HIS WILL by Nathan Williams

In this Southern Gothic dark comedy, the alcoholic family patriarch, Hank, has a vise-grip hold on his daughter, Justine, and her Native American boyfriend, August. Tensions rise when Hank's trashy girlfriend, Iris, enters the picture and soaks him for everything he’s worth, setting Hank up for a desperate attempt to hold on to what he’s got left.

WHO YOU ARE by Lissette Chavez
This psychological thriller pits a brother and sister against each other over the recent tragic death of their parents. The brother goes missing…or does he? The arrival of sketchy friends, a nosy detective, and a harrowing car ride throw this spooky drama into a thrilling and harrowing climax.

CINCINNATI’S FREE PRESS by Victoria Pfau
Nationalist fear has been stoked. A divisive politician has been elected. Immigrants are being targeted. Woman are trying to find their place in a brutal world. This is 1917 Cincinnati and the German population is under attack. The past reflects the present in this Suffragette-era newspaper drama that strikes a line across a hundred years of American history.

The 2017 Stage & Screen Fest is created, produced and performed by a company of students who are working under the direction and mentorship of Assistant Professor of Theatre Arts, Robert Cucuzza. The 2015 Stage & Screen Fest featured four student plays and a street dance performance by guest artist Boogie Frantick. With the projected opening of a state-of-the-art theater in the new Arts, Media & Performance Building in May 2017, L.A. Mission College has made a commitment to develop an interdisciplinary, contemporary culture of theatre arts that both reflects its diverse student body and provides practical experience in the production of live entertainment.

College Named Top-Ten Finalist for NSF Innovation Challenge

                                

SYLMAR, CA – Los Angeles Mission College was named a top-ten finalist for the National Science Foundation’s fourth annual Community College Innovation Challenge, college officials announced today.

L.A. Mission College’s team presented their proposal for using wastewater to generate electricity throughout Los Angeles. The team includes biotechnology students Thibault Angouillant, Karla Martinez Hurtado, Mary Abrams, Juan Sosa Matute, and faculty mentor, Stephen Brown, PhD.

“Our students were thrilled to participate and took special pride in their project,” said Mehrdad Tajkarimi, PhD, who teaches Biotechnology at the college. “Their project uses bacteria in an innovative microbial fuel cell configuration to treat wastewater and produce energy.”

The NSF challenge requires teams to assess their innovation’s potential impact, identify its scientific and market feasibility and determine its societal relevance. Teams then must submit written and video entries.

According to Dr. Tajkarimi, the NSF challenge strengthens entrepreneurial thinking among community college students by challenging them to use science, technology, engineering and mathematics to find innovative solutions to real-world problems.

Finalists will attend an NSF-AACC-sponsored Innovation Boot Camp in Alexandria, Virginia, in June. At the boot camp, students will interact with entrepreneurs and experts in business planning, stakeholder engagement, communication and marketplace dynamics.

For more information about L.A. Mission College’s Biotechnology efforts, contact Alejandro Guzman, 818.833.3431.
