College Security Officer Debuts Stage Production at Mount
Aug. 14, 2011 -- Mount security officer Felicia Jones takes her true passion of writing to a new level in September when she debuts her first play at the College.
Jones' work, "Street Love Monologues," debuted at the The Rose Hills Auditorium on the Doheny Campus, 10 Chester Place, Los Angeles 90007, on Sept. 10. The play, written, produced and directed by Jones, explores the emotions of two best friends who grew up in South Central Los Angeles, Nikki Patterson and Paris Smith, who secretly battle abuse and depression in their personal lives. In October, the production moves to the College's Chalon Campus at the William H. Hannon Theater, 12001 Chalon Road, Los Angeles 90049.
"There are so many women in these same situations, battling depression and abuse with no one to turn to," says Jones, of Long Beach. Jones says she suffered through domestic violence and hopes her writing will give others a voice to bring change to their lives. Jones' project is self-financed through her company, Felicia Nicole Productions.
General admission for the play is $20, or $10 with a military or school ID. Dates of the performance can be found at www.felicianicoleproductions.com.
