It’s show time for the Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC) theatre program this weekend, and it’s the first time the new Blackbox Theatre, located in the East Campus, will be used at the school.

The program will stage multiple performances of the comedy, “Out of Sterno,” by Deborah Zoe Laufer, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

“Now that we have our own space, it’s limitless. We can do whatever we want in here,” CVCC play production class student Hailey Pearce said. She plays Zena in the production.

“Out of Sterno” is a PG-13 coming-of-age play in an Alice in Wonderland world, according to a CVCC press release. It explores the triumph and heartbreak of growing up and the contradictory societal pressures women face just trying to make it across town.
