Fishing Comedy this Weekend at SWOSU
The Department of Communication and Theatre at Southwestern Oklahoma State University is proud to showcase the design and technical work of several theatre students in the department’s comedic production of Zara Spook and Other Lures.
The comedy runs Saturday, February 16, through Monday, February 18, at 7:30 p.m. nightly in the Old Science Building Auditorium on the Weatherford campus.
The Joan Ackermann play is being directed by guest-director Patt Ward Curtin with technical direction and lighting design by Eddie Gonzales, Jr., both SWOSU alums.
Cody (NE) freshman Anne Wicker is the production’s stage manager. Altus senior Dayna Robinson is the scenic painter and costume designer. Graphics designer and properties designer is Ashley Howard of Fort Worth (TX). One of the actresses in the show, junior Tiffany Tuggle of Hollis, is designing the makeup. Completing the design team is Guymon freshman Edward Pierce as the sound designer. Assisting with the numerous props in the production is Fay senior Ariana Farris and Yukon sophomore Jessica Limestall. Fairview senior Jamie King is assisting with the costumes.
Curtin said the design team has created a wonderful environment for this zany tale to come to life. The plot line takes the characters from a bedroom in West Virginia, to two vehicles traveling cross-country to New Mexico, to the lake in Truth or Consequences, to a boat on a lake, and finally to an auditorium for the crowning of the winners in the Bassin’ Gal tournament.
Admission to the comedy is $5 for adults, $3 for non-SWOSU students, and free for individuals with an SWOSU I.D. card.
