SWOSU Theatre Opens with The Drawer Boy
Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s theatre is set to open its 2006-07 season with The Drawer Boy.
The Drawer Boy runs September 27-30 under the guidance of Steve Strickler and Paul Shaffer. All performances are at 7:30 p.m. in the Old Science Building Auditorium. Admission is $3 for adults, $1.50 for non-SWOSU students, and free for individuals with an SWOSU I.D. card. Additional ticket information is available by calling 580.774.3240.
Strickler said the production will travel to Lawton later this year for the state Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.
The Drawer Boy, by Michael Healey, has only three characters: two farmers – Angus and Morgan – and Miles, an urban individual who is an actor staying with Morgan and Angus to learn about farming so that he can write a play about it. What starts out as a comedic look at these two lifestyles clashing, soon takes a quick turn to reveal a much more serious insight to the intriguing life of the two farmers.
The three SWOSU student actors include Samuel Jennings, Oklahoma City, as Morgan; Jess Moore, Burns Flat, as Angus; and Mark Henry, Cordell, as Miles.
