director’s note in the program offering insights into this unusual theatrical event. It’s short — only an hour — and guaranteed to wake you up with music/lights/effects and surprises.

Never Swim Alone continues next weekend, Friday and Saturday only, 8 pm at LCC’s Black Box Stage. Park on Grand Avenue by the park and enter through the small door on the south side of the Gannon building. (There’s a stand-up sign by the door.) If you park in the ramp there’s a long walk (guided by signs) to room 168 of the Gannon Building.
