Delta college

STOCKTON -- Delta Drama returns to the stage this week with the production that was originally planned for spring 2020, but was cancelled one week into rehearsal due to the pandemic. Amazingly, over 65 percent of the cast returns to this innovative production.


Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, who The New York Times calls "one of this country’s most original and illuminating writers," composes a contemporary take on a classic morality play that offers a playful and colloquial examination of the human condition in the face of mortality.


This 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist is a modern riff on the 15th Century morality play “Everyman," which follows the character Everybody (chosen from amongst the cast by lottery at each performance) as he or she travels down a road toward life's greatest mystery — the meaning of living. 

It takes place Fridays and Saturdays on April 29-30 as well as May 6-7 at 7 p.m. plus Sundays May 1 and May 8 at 2 p.m. at the  Alfred Muller Studio Theatre, San Joaquin Delta College

Free tickets are available at the Delta Center for the Arts Box Office online or by calling (209) 954-5110. 

It is recommended for ages 12 and up. Guests must provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Masks are required indoors. 

The production staff includes Director Greg Foro, Stage Manager Jaclyn Tamura, Costume Designer Jonathan Singer, Set Designer Jessica Bertine, Lighting Designer Kevin Bautch, and Sound Design Greg Foro.

The cast includes Usher/Understanding Nina Thiel, Death Quinn Lewis, Love Camille Priscilla, Time Michael Gonzales, God Jaida Cornish, Evil .Jon-Michael Porter, Somebodies Imri Tate, Tyler Vernon, Alvaro Hernandez-Rojas, and Antonio Muñoz Daniela, and Santieuste-Loera Ensemble Brianna Pancheco, Destiny Sutherland, Carlos Roman, and Derick Stoker.
