The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep presents the suspenseful murder mystery thriller D.O.A. as its next student production. Frank Bigelow walks into a police station to report a murder: his own. Will he unravel the mystery before his time runs out? Will the killer be brought to justice? An adaptation of the 1950s classic noir film, D.O.A. is a swiftly moving thriller that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. With cigar-smoking detectives and gun-toting femme fatales, D.O.A. includes all the noir tropes plus updates to the story that will appeal to modern audiences.
Director, Benjamin Cole, is driven to guide his strong cast of student actors. “You’ll see some compelling scene work, and devoted emotional commitment between the actors,” Cole reports. “What I love best about this production is the constant building of tension and unpredictable twists as more is revealed from each character.” The show runs a daring sprint of 70 minutes with no intermission and promises to intrigue audiences throughout.
Cole is a member of the Society of American Fight Directors or S.A.F.D. The organization is an internationally recognized non-profit dedicated to promoting safety and fostering excellence in the art of stage combat. The skills taught in our fight choreography are based on historically accurate techniques, but adapted to keep actors safe and looking cool while telling stories of theatrical violence on stage. Cole boasts, “I’m so proud of our student’s commitment to safety while performing all the fight moments. They have been able to do some very impressive routines while maintaining these electrifying characters.”
