Mt. SAC Production Chronicles the McCarthy Era

WALNUT, Calif.—The Mt. San Antonio College Theater Department will present its production of Are You Now or Have You Ever Been? on Fridays and Saturdays, Dec. 1-2 and 8-9, 8 p.m., in the Studio Theater.

This Mt. SAC production brings to the stage the House Un-American Activities Committee’s investigation of show business in the 1950s, in which some the biggest names in Hollywood came under scrutiny and were blacklisted as communists. Are You Now or Have You Ever Been? looks at the era of McCarthyism and uses the actual words of both the interrogators and witnesses to dramatize what has been described as one of the most damaging assaults on personal liberties in U. S. history.

Special matinee performances will be held on Sundays, Dec. 3 and 10, at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for general admission, $9 for students and seniors.

For tickets and information, call the Mt. SAC Performing Arts Box Office at (909) 468-4050.
