The world premiere of “The Janitor,” a new comic opera written and composed by ECC faculty member and composer William E. Doyle, takes the Campus Theatre stage at 8 p.m. Sept. 28 and 3 p.m. Sept. 29. In this performance that asks, “How bad can a good time be?” the audience gets a look at intersection of good and evil while music, science, poetry and art are explored. Cast members deal with temptation, jobs, bosses and some ridiculous advice. “The Janitor” embarks on a comical ride through time and space, upending longstanding views of creation, the universe, scholars, beloved fairy tales, and even airline safety demonstrations! Tickets are $10-$21 and may be purchased at www.centerforthearts.org using the online ticketing system or by phone at 800-832-ARTS. The Ticket Office is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Campus parking is $3. El Camino College is located at 16007 Crenshaw Boulevard, Torrance.
