It’s the B-side of the American Revolution, the song playing on the other side of the record, while you thought you were listening to what’s on top.

America’s first serial killers, the Harpe Brothers, are fighting a private war in the woods of Tennessee against the doomed democracy of the tyrant George Washington. As Big and Little Harpe, with their murderous and beautiful companions, the Roberts twins, cut a bloody swath across Satan’s hometown of Knoxville, a preacher’s daughter is ready for a little bit more… excitement in her life.

But the record of history is scratched and jumping around and it’s all playing at once, and it’s only held together by the sweet crooning of your host, your MC, a man known only as The Rockabilly Boy, who bears a not-coincidental resemblance to a certain King of rock and roll…

Fast-paced, bloody, scored by a live rockabilly band, Americamisfit is the side of the country you only see out of the corner of your eye. Blink, and it’s gone.

The Senior Company 2014 includes Madeline Charne, Tyler Elliot, Katie Goldman, Allison Hrabar, Mark Levine-Weinberg, Theo Noomah, Anna Russell, Swift Shuker-Haines, and Morgan Williams. With Set Design by Marta Roncada, Costume Design by Tara Webb and Sound Design by Scott Burgess. Music Direction by Ben Diamond and Choreography by Ashley Banks.

Senior Company 2013 presents THE COSMONAUT’S LAST MESSAGE…

The Department of Theater’s Senior Company 2013 presents David Greig’s The cosmonaut’s last message to the woman he once loved in the former Soviet Union on December 7th and 8th at 8PM and December 8th and 9th at 2PM in the LPAC Frear Ensemble Theatre.

A forgotten cosmonaut and the daughter he left behind.
A polite stranger in a suit.
A failing marriage.

Cosmonaut is an epic journey littered with televisions, airports, tape recorders, strip clubs, and a visit to Norway. Scottish Playwright David Greig presents us with individuals desperately attempting to communicate as their efforts amount to nothing but static. Cosmonaut takes us through that attempt, moving to assemble these “orbiting fragments of life” into, as Greig puts it, “a story that makes sense.”

Directed by Meryl Sands and Sebastian Bravo Montenegro. Senior Company ensemble includes: Jeannette Leopold, Kari Olmon, Vianca Masucci, Sophia Naylor, Sebastian Bravo Montenegro, and Meryl Sands. Stage Managing by Emily Melnick, Scenic Design by Eric Verhasselt, Media Design by Fernando Maldonado, Props Design by Katie Goldman, Costume Design by Laila Swanson, Lighting Design by James Murphy, and Sound Design by Adam Riggar. An amateur production, free and open to the public.

The Department of Theater and Senior Company 2012 FEFU AND HER FRIENDS by Marie Irene Fornes

The Department of Theater and Senior Company 2012 presents Fefu and Her Friends by Marie Irene Fornes. The play will debut Thursday, December 1st at 8:30 pm and will be performed Friday, December 2nd at 8pm, Saturday, December 3rd at 2pm and 7pm, and Sunday, December 4th at 2pm and 7pm. This production will take place in an off-campus house for a small audience. It is free and open to the public; however, reservations must be made ahead of time.

Written by renowned playwright Maria Irene Fornes, this Obie-award winning play takes place in Fefu’s home in the 1930s. As we move through scenes in different parts of the house and eavesdrop on the reminiscing and philosophizing of some old college friends, we become intimately involved in Fefu’s mysterious world. Fornes’ masterpiece draws funny yet chilling portraits of women who, though they inhabit a world almost a century old, remain eerily recognizable today. Fornes herself directed the original production in 1977 in New York with the New York Theatre Strategy at the Relativity Media Lab.

Featuring Ryane Disken-Cahill ’12, Michelle Fennell ’12, Lori Barkin ‘12, Katie Goldman ‘14, Maddie Charne ‘14, Elliana Bisgaard-Church ‘13, Hannah Kosman ‘14 and Jessica Cannizzaro ’12 with sets and costumes by Professor Laila Swanson.  The faculty advisor for this production is Professor K. Elizabeth Stevens.
