IVCC Living Room Stage

During 2020, we used technology to bring entertainment to you! We recorded several shows featuring students and community members: Terror in the Aisles, Cool Yule, and Hooray for Hollywood.

Director and Choreographer Don Grant Zellmer also did live interviews with several theatre notables and supporters of the fine arts: Frank Vlastnic, Alyce Scott, Howard Johnson, Eric Chambliss, and more.

To view these shows and interviews, visit our IVCC Fine Arts YouTube Channel.
