The Mt. San Antonio College Theater Program will stage its production of Mt. SAC Theater Professor Richard Strand’s “The Second-Story Man” on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 20 and 21, at 8 p.m., with a special Sunday matinee, Oct. 22, at 2 p.m., in the college’s Clarke Theater.

 Alex, a thief-for-hire who is nearing retirement, decides to pull a final caper against his ungrateful employer. His plan is to gain entry to his boss’ apartment by cutting a hole through the ceiling of the apartment below. However, the plan is derailed when his assistant/girlfriend/fiancé Kate determines it is more important to mount a rescue mission for a baby bird trapped outside the window.

 “The Second-Story Man” was developed at the Eugene O’Neill Center, premiered at The Cricket Theater in Minneapolis, and had a production in Los Angeles, produced by The Interact Theatre Company. Theater Professor Alan Brooks directs this Mt. SAC production.

 Tickets are $14 for general admission, $10 for seniors, students, and children under 12.
