Genius and insanity: CMC Theatre’s ‘Proof’ considers both sides of equation

David Auburn’s play “Proof” opens Feb. 7 at Colorado Mountain College in Spring Valley.

Catherine and her father Robert are alike in many ways, leaving Catherine to worry whether she’ll inherit his genius for math, his mental instability or both. Her sister Claire and her father’s student Hal help Catherine shed light on which it will be.

The cast of four features CMC theater students Cora Wettlin as Catherine and David Collier as Hal. CMC theater graduate Cassidy Willey plays the role of Claire, and veteran actor and director G. Thomas Cochran plays Robert. They are directed by Brad Moore.

The play will be performed Feb. 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees Feb. 9 and 16 at 2 p.m. in the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Spring Valley. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, seniors, staff and faculty and can be reserved at svticketsales@coloradomtn.edu or 947-8177, or purchased with cash or check at the door.

Take a trip back to a mystical, magical age @ Carbondale
Feb 20 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Immerse yourself in the literature of the Anglo-Saxons, a migratory, Germanic people caught between two worlds in the land of middle-earth: their ancestral homeland on the North Sea and the green isle of Britain. Explore the boundaries between strength and frailty, allegiance and honor and the isolation of exile: the fleeting transience of a short life and the hope of eternal rest: the fellowship of kinfolk and the bitterness of blood-feuds; the rise of usurpers and the fall of virtuous retainers. Experience epic poetry, elegis, riddles, sacred texts and historical prose while contemplating the identity of a civilized people that lived over a thousand years ago. This course will be offered twice, once from 2/20-3/6 and again from 3/20-4/10. Different texts will be read in each course, so students can take either course or both. Meets Thursdays, 2/20-3/6. Cost: $118. Refund date: 2/18.
