October 6, 2010 - Sylvia Bierschenk
NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS - The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Theatre will present a student-directed production of Woody Allen's "Old Saybrook" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, and at 2 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16. All performances are in the Downstage Theatre located on the first floor of the Griffith Fine Arts Building.
The action follows two couples having a Sunday get-together in one of their homes. The afternoon is interrupted when the previous owners of the home stop in and learn that things are not at all what they seem, explained Austin senior Kelsey McMillan, the play's director. "This farcical identity crisis will be sure to keep you guessing!"
The play is recommended for mature audiences.
Cast members are freshmen Jeron Humphrey of Dallas, Jennifer Sims of Garland and Laura McFeeters of Watauga; Mesquite sophomores Emily Gibson and John Lisi; British exchange student Tommy Yaman; and graduate student Zach Russell of Austin.
Previously at SFA McMillan directed "The Lost Girl and assistant directed "The Weir." She appeared in "Woyzeck" and designed the hair and makeup for " Bad Boy Nietzsche," "Lady of Property," "Tone Clusters" and "The Other Son."
Tickets for "Old Saybrook" are $3 each. For tickets or more information, please call (9360 468-5820 or call (936) 468-6407 or (888) 240-ARTS.
