Smith Center at Ohlone College UPCOMING EVENT:

Ohlone College FALL 2021 LIVE, In-Person, Theatre Production: ANIMAL FARM
George Orwell's Novel Adapted by Ian Wooldridge
November 12-13, 18-20*, 8pm
ASL Interpreted November 19

Animal Farm. All Animals are created equal. Red barn background with shadow fo windmill and picture of horse and pig in white cut outs.What happens when the ideals of equality are manipulated and corrupted to gain power? George Orwell's satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved magnificently long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism. It has given the world at least one immortal phrase: "Some are more equal than others." This dramatization remains faithful to the book's plot, and intent, and retains both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message. Enjoy Ohlone’s award-winning Theatre & Dance Department production of Animal Farm. Watch the characters come to life on the Smith Center stage. Limited, socially distanced, indoor seating.
