Theatre to perform “Children”

   Written by A.R. Gurney, Jr., “Children” is a story of an American family forced to deal with the impact of societal changes on their comfortable status quo life. It takes place on the terrace of the summer home of a wealthy WASP family on a resort island off the New England coast. Blending humor and drama, “Children” explores the institution of the American family in the challenging last years of the 20th century.
   The production is directed by Ozarks Theatre Professor Dr. Pat Farmer. Professor Bruce Brown is the scenic and lighting designer, Misti-Nicole Ponder is the costume designer, Angela Payne is the sound designer, Farmer is the graphic designer and India Judd is the stage manager.
   The cast includes Barbara Manning as Mother, Jessica Gay as Jane, Dane Sanders as Randy, Ponder as Barbara and Al Berry as Pokey.
   The crew consists of Brown as technical director, Shelly Muston as light board operator, Payne as sound board operator, Berry as assistant stage manager and Lacey Kennedy as wardrobe crew chief. The wardrobe and prop/stage crews include Mandi Asmussen, Diane Farrow, Jami Reehm, Saul Palencia, John Warren, Bradley Braddock and Sean Riordan.

Medieval storyteller scheduled
   
Ozarks will present “Martha Hannah, Medieval Teller of Tales” at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 14, as part of the 2003-2004 Walton Arts & Ideas Series. Tickets are free for U of O students, faculty and staff, and $10 for the general public.
   Hannah’s performance of medieval English stories, comedy and song is the first event of this academic year for the Walton Program. This year’s theme is “A Tour of the British Isles.”
   With a cockney accent and clad in period costume, Hannah, as the hilarious Maid Martha, takes audiences back to an earlier time by weaving a vivid verbal picture of medieval history, fantasy and ghost stories in this entertaining and educational show designed for the whole family. Versatile and dynamic and with a love for working with a live audience, she draws the audience in and brings them on stage with hilarious results.
   “Martha’s expressiveness, vitality, great knowledge of Medieval England, beautiful singing voice and great choice of musical accompaniment all added up to a rollicking good time,” wrote one reviewer of her show.
   An avid arts-in-education advocate, Hannah is a veteran professional character actor. She is a performing artist on the touring roster with the Texas Commission on the Arts, the Tennessee Arts Commission’s Arts in Education roster and the Mid-America Arts Alliance’s Heartland Arts Fund Program.

Eagles, Lady Eagles whip LC
