Central New Mexico Community College will celebrate the opening of its new Coal Avenue Theatre with “The Cat Has 8 Lives,” an entertaining collection of eight ten-minute plays featuring both hilarity and heartbreak.

The show, which features 21 students and a faculty member, will run on weekends from Nov. 7-23 – Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. Regular admission is $8. Student/military/senior discount admission is $5. Reservations are recommended by calling 224-3593.

It is the first presentation in the CNM Theatre Department’s new 65-seat, black box theatre located on the north side of Coal Avenue between University Blvd. and Buena Vista Dr., near the crosswalk between the S and JS buildings.

In the screwball romantic comedy, The Rental, lonely Sheila awakes to find that her best friend has hired her a Rent-A-Date for her birthday. In the wonderfully wacky comedy High Speed Disconnect, technology takes its toll on young love. In the funny and witty Let’s Not Talk About Men, a colorful group of friends attempts the impossible at brunch. Rounding out Act I, Gunning for Life unfolds a moving, delicate drama with laughter and tears as an older married couple faces a very tough choice.

In Act II, the chilling sci-fi drama L.A. 8 A.M. reveals a twist you won’t see coming. Next, in Music. Poem. Music., two sisters meet at Pie Heaven Diner in a funny and heartfelt battle over their recently deceased father’s final wishes. In the hilarious hit men comedy Canadian Tuxedo, let’s just say Murphy’s Law reigns supreme. Rounding out the evening is a raucous screwball physical comedy, Pillow Talk.  If you need marital counseling, don’t go there.

The plays are recommended for mature audiences due to some adult themes and some adult language. For more information, contact Joe Damour at (505) 508-7092 or email jdamour@cnm.edu
