Each spring the Mesa College Theatre Department invites a local production company to take up residency in the Apolliad Theatre. This affords students the opportunity to work along-side experienced artists while learning their craft, and gain professional credit as well. It also provides a temporary venue for a "homeless" theatre company including access to scenic shop, costume shop, rehearsal spaces, and other production facilities. This year we are proud to announce a partnership with respected InnerMission Productions headed up by Carla Nell, and Kym Pappas. This marks the third time Mesa College Theatre has collaborated with outside groups. Previous ventures involved the San Diego Asian American Theatre, and Common Ground Theatre.

This year's production is San Diego's Premiere of "No Child. . .", by Nilaja Sun.  The show runs May 12-20, 2012 at the Apolliad Theater at San Diego Mesa College, 7250 Mesa College Dr., San Diego, CA, 92111, (619) 388-2228.

"What you are about to see is a story about a play within a play within a play"

Nilaja Sun spent six weeks teaching/directing a play during No Child Left Behind. The play is Our Country's Good, which is about a group of Australian royal marines and convicts putting on a production of The Recruiting Officer. The playwright performs No Child. . . as a one-woman show and licenses it out for theatrical productions. Mesa College acting students work alongside professional actors for this San Diego premiere.
