Theatre Production Coming Soon
   The U of O Theatre department will present its spring production “Lovers: Winners” at 7:30 p.m., April 19-2, in the Walton Fine Arts Center. Written by Irish playwright Brian Friel and under the direction of Professor Pat Farmer, “Lovers: Winners” is a gentle, humorous and touching play set in 1966 on top of Ardnageeha, the hill of the winds, which overlooks the town of Ballymore in Northern Ireland. Joe and Mag are two high school students who have come to the hill to study for their final exams for their final year in school. They will be married in three weeks. The characters of The Man and The Woman are narrators and guides for the play and heighten the irony of the story of the two teenagers. The production will be staged in the round, with 125 audience members seated on all sides of the set.
   The cast includes Sam Fincher as The Man, Misti Ponder as The Woman, April James as Maggie, and Johnny Waldrop as Joe. Bruce Brown will serve as the technical director and light designer, Megann McManus as the scenic designer, Johnny Waldrop as the sound designer, Nathan Sain as the graphic designer, Dustin Campbell as the stage manager and Elizabeth Ann Okey as the assistant stage manager.
