ADRIAN, Mich. – Adrian College Theatre presents two short comedies, “Lone Star” and “Laundry and Bourbon,” written by James McLure, on February 15, 16, 17 and 18, 2012.
Both performances are certain to get a laugh from everyone, as the comedies are set in a small Texas town, each focusing on a different perspective: female and male. “Lone Star” will take you to the life of Roy, a man who has just returned from Vietnam. While attempting to restore his status among the community, Roy must overcome new battles of secrets and betrayal by his own family. On the other side of the spectrum, “Laundry and Bourbon” will show you the life of Roy’s wife, Elizabeth. The women of the town have even more secrets to spill to Elizabeth, who soon finds out that her husband has been unfaithful since returning from war. Both stories contain their shares of chaos, but come together in the end to inspire inner strength and true happiness.
Ms. Annissa Morgensen-Lindsay directs the plays. Students starring in the shows include: Mat Pecek, Tim Harkleroad, Brian Crawford, Gabrielle Piazza, Alexandra Myers and Kellie Fisher. Student Set Designers are Kara Edgerton, Janene Dusseau and Breanne Stokes. Student Stage Managers are Jeffrey Clark and Cambray Sampson.
These productions take place in Downs Hall Theatre at 8:00 PM each night. Ticket prices are $8.00 for the general public and $6.00 for students, seniors and Adrian College staff. Downs Hall Theatre is located off South Madison Street next to the Adrian College campus bell tower.
