The ASU Theatre announces the cast of the fall production of Noel Coward's "Private Lives," one of the most flippant plays ever written.
Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger.
Performances of "Private Lives" will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday-Saturday, Nov. 11-12, and Monday-Wednesday, Nov. 14-16.
A "meet the company" dessert reception will follow the Nov. 11 opening night performance. All performances will take place in Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive, Jonesboro.
The ASU Theatre's production of "Private Lives" is under the stage direction of Lisa Bohn, assistant professor of Theatre. Scenic and Lighting design will be by Jeff McLaughlin, assistant professor of Theatre, and Claire Garrard, assistant professor of Theatre, will serve as costume designer. Samantha Cole, a junior theatre major from Jonesboro, will serve as stage manager.
The cast includes Jordan Seitz, a junior theatre major from Little Rock as Sibyl; Ben Griffin, a senior theatre major from Jacksonville as Elyot; Hunter Moody, a junior theatre major from Walnut Ridge as Victor; Rose Milligan, a theatre graduate student from Higden as Amanda; and Payton Overturf, a freshman theatre major from Cabot, as Louise.
