Moradokmai Theatre Community from Thailand to Perform at FVCC March 21

FVCC’s Theatre Department and international student club, Global Friends, will host two performances by the Moradokmai Theatre Community and Homeschool from Patumthani, Thailand on March 21. Free and open to the public, the performances will begin at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. inside the FVCC Theatre on campus.

Students from the Moradokmai Theatre Community and Homeschool will perform “The Trial of Wanthong,” a dance and musical drama based upon a Thai legend about a classic love triangle that ends in tragedy.

The performance will be directed by Kruchang Janaprakal Chandruang, a well-known Thai dramatist and actor who founded the Moradokmai Theatre Community and Homeschool. Kruchang, an alumnus of FVCC, earned a master’s degree from the University of Montana School of Theatre and Dance in 1979 before returning to Thailand to commence his career in performing and teaching.
