FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Monday, November 1, 2004

The Hudson Valley Community College Student Theater Club will perform "Feiffer's People" on Thursday, November 11 through Saturday, November 13 in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium. Each show begins at 8 p.m. and admission is free.

"Feiffer's People," written by Jules Feiffer, is a collection of 99 different skits depicting all aspects of life as it was in the 1960s. The performance offers a panoramic view of political, social, and ethnic topics as they were in Feiffer's time. Each skit represents the voices of colorful and intriguing characters, some of whom are repeated throughout the show and some who appear only once. Whether it's social class, political views, gender roles, or racial tensions, Feiffer finds a way to work it into his show in an entertaining yet thought-provoking manner.

Due to content, persons under the age of 18 should not attend without a parent or legal guardian.
