Animal Farm by George Orwell

Adapted by Nelson Bond

Co-Produced by Mitchell College and Flock Theatre

Directed by Noah Todd and Victor Chiburis

Orwell’s famous allegorical novel transposed into script reflects the events that created the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union, set against the backdrop of the Manor Farm, an aesthetic perfectly imagined within Mitchell College’s Red Barn venue. In Animal Farm, two young pigs named Napoleon and Snowball mount a rebellion against the farmers when their leader, Old Major, passes away. The play follows Napoleon as he slowly and nefariously restructures the farm, wages war, and controls his subordinates through propaganda and manipulation.

REQUEST INFORMATION

Student's Date of Birth



A few words on fit.

 

"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.

 

If you are looking for a college that: 

 

  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities

 

 

 

…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
