After a four-year hiatus, The Drama Club returns with their largest production to date, the premiere of Faust by Michael Federico, Jeffrey Schmidt, and Lydia Mackay—freely adapted from Goethe and Marlowe.

Years from now, renowned chemist Dr. John Faust lives and works in the world of Big Pharma, “male-enhancement” pills, and easy weight-loss drugs, but when he tests the bounds of medicine in an attempt to “see the mind of God,” Faust is forced underground and into the Wasteland. Lucky for him, that’s where all the fun happens. With the aid of Mephistopheles, Faust transforms into an object of worship for cosplayers, club kids, and criminals. Of course, the Devil only lets you dance for a little while. To find the one thing he truly wants, Faust might just have to sell his soul. This new adaptation of Faust fuses elements of theatre, movement, music, and good old-fashioned horror to bring this classic tale of Good and Evil to life.

The Drama Club has assembled an impressive creative team for Faust. Jeffrey Schmidt directs a cast that includes Cameron Cobb as Faust, Lydia Mackay as Mephistopheles, and Drew Wall as Phil (the best damn cab driver in the world). GRAMMY and TONY nominee Tim O’Heir (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, 2014) will design sound and create original music for the show, Amanda West (ATTPAC, Theatre Three) handles scenic and lighting design, Zenobia Taylor (The Arsonists, Hands on a Hardbody) choreographs, Korey Kent (Shakespeare Dallas, Kitchen Dog Theater) is designing costumes, Christie Vela (DTC, Kitchen Dog Theater) serves as producer and Whitney Holotik (Broken Gears Project Theatre, Echo Theatre) serves as producer.
