NACOGDOCHES, Texas –The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Theatre will present the student-directed one-act play “Sing to Me Through Open Windows” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 22, and at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 23, in Regents Suite A in the Baker Pattillo Student Center on the SFA campus.

Directed by Baytown senior Ty Carter, Arthur Kopit’s “Sing to Me Through Open Windows” is an absurdist play told through the memory of a young boy, Andrew, who visits his dear magician friend and his butler, the Cynical Clown. With themes of lost childhood and innocence, as well as fear of the uncontrollable, this play is the perfect parallel to our experiences in the world today, according to Carter.

The cast features Kai Crumley, Kingwood sophomore, as The Boy; Sami Hurley, Dallas sophomore, as The Man; and Dorie Bloodworth, The Woodlands senior; as The Clown.

The crew includes Winnie junior Andria Clement, stage manager; Brownsboro senior Maige Anderson, scenic and props designer; Edinburg senior Makayla Moreno, costume designer; Georgetown junior David Cleghorn, lighting designer; and Plant City, Florida, senior Salvador Nunez, sound designer.

Carter’s previous SFA theatre experience includes being assistant director for the School of Theatre’s production of Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town.” He also worked for The Walt Disney Company as a performer prior to the pandemic.

Faculty production advisor for “Sing to Me Through Open Windows” is Dr. Inga Meier.
