Cast slated for C-SC production "The Foursome"
Friday, September 17, 2010
CANTON, Mo. – Following auditions on Aug. 23, The Foursome cast has been chosen. Culver-Stockton College will present Norm Foster’s work Thursday, Sept.23 through Sunday, Sept. 26. There will also be an extra production of the play on Thursday, Sept. 30 as a part of C-SC Homecoming 2010 events. All performances will take place in the Mabee Little Theatre, located in the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center on the C-SC campus.
The Foursome tells the comic tale of four buddies who are reunited after losing touch during the past 15 years.
“We felt that this theatre production was a perfect fit for the week of Homecoming,” said S. Kent Miller, chair of the C-SC Fine Arts Division and director of the production. “The humorous, light hearted storyline is something that our alums will be able to connect with.”
The four main characters reconnect during 18 holes of golf, where their failure and success stories from the past 15 years begin to unravel. Rick, played by senior speech and theatre education major Travis Dahlhauser from Rockford, Ill., is the schemer of the bunch who is always looking for ways to hustle his friends. Patrick Parsons, senior criminal justice major from Memphis, Mo., will fill the role of Ted, the more conservative of the group. However, he has a bit of a drinking problem and is insecure about his second marriage to a younger woman. Cameron is a perpetual worrier who among the group is the most concerned with keeping in touch with his friends. Cameron will be portrayed by senior Zach Martin, theatre major from Ducatur, Ill. Lastly, there is Donnie, a nerdy family man who talks non-stop about his wife and five children played by sophomore musical theatre major Tim Maples from Chicago, Ill. As the four men catch up on their endeavors since their college days, the audience is sure to love this fun, witty production that many of us can relate to.
Production crew for the show includes assistant director Danielle Hauer, senior arts management major from Troy, Mo.; stage manager Jeffrey DeGraw, sophomore arts management major from Canton, Mo.; assistant stage managers Kiana Reed, freshman speech and theatre education major from Chicago, Ill., and Brandon Mundschenk, freshman theatre major from Deer Park, Ill.; house manager Jerica Exum, senior arts management major from Chicago, Ill.; and box office manager Samantha Kheim, senior arts management major from Saint Charles, Mo.
This production will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 23 through Saturday, Sept. 25; 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 26; and 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30. Ticket prices are $6 for adults, $4 for non-C-SC students, and free for C-SC students, faculty, and staff.
