From badminton to belly dancing and fencing to community theater, Merced College is offering more than a dozen community service classes that begin in August.
Merced College Community Services provides area residents with opportunities for non-credit classes, some of which include field trips.
The Community Theatre Play Production Class plans to hold auditions for its production of Lanford Wilson’s “The Rimers of Eldritch” beginning at 6 p.m. Aug. 5.
Performances are planned at the Mariposa County Park Amphitheater in Mariposa, where auditions will also take place. The production has 10 female roles and seven male roles.
Never miss a local story.
Performances are scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 3, 4, 10 and 11, as well as 2 p.m. Oct. 12.
As a production class, there are roles for actors, technicians and managers, according to a news release.
The more than 12 other classes include dance, art, sports, fitness and excursion courses that begin between Aug. 2 and 19. The classes cost between $20 and $99, and some require an additional materials fee.
