News from Lindsey Wilson College
Columbia, KY - The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program will open its fall season with the first main-stage play directed by an LWC student. Vanities, directed by LWC senior Suzie Herrington of Dearborn, MI, will be presented at 7pmCT Wed-Thu-Fri, 21-23 Oct 2015, in V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY
Set in the 1960s and '70s, "Vanities: is a comedy-drama that follow three friends as they mature from high school cheerleaders into adulthood.
Herrington said a big reason she chose Vanities, was because it's a funny play that features characters audience members can relate to.
"The girls are just so funny," Herrington said. "And they reminded me of a lot of people in my life, and people I've met, and sometimes even myself. And so I think that there's a little bit of these girls in everybody."
Herrington said that a strong element of the play, which was written by Jack Heifner, is change.
"Things change over the course of their lives because they start out in the '60s and then go through to the '70s," Herrington said. "And so all these girls are experiencing all that change and in the end they're all totally different people. It reminds me of experience through college. Just coming here, being one person, and then leaving a totally different person. That's how I relate to it, and I think a lot of people will be able to relate to it in that way."
LWC Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock said he is excited about Herrington's play because it will add depth to the college's theatre program.
"This is the first of what I hope will be a number of endeavours like this, where students take the initiative," Brock said. "That's what I was looking for."
Vanities, will be presented in a black-box setting, which means seats will be on stage and surround the cast. That will reduce audience capacity from more than 300 in Henry Auditorium's usual proscenium-style to about 50 seats.
"It gives the actors a really intimate experience with an audience, because they're right there," Brock said. "And it gives the audience a real wonderful experience."
The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program will present Vanities,, directed by theatre senior Suzie Herrington, at 7pmCT Oct. 21-23 at V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street. Columbia, KY Contact: Robert Brock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
