Children's Theatre Production Planned at SWOSU

The Girl who fell through a hole in a her sweater
Amanda Tyson, Yukon; and Sarajane Bidwell, Norman, are cast members in the SWOSU
production of The Girl Who Fell Through a Hole in Her Sweater.

A children’s theatre production, The Girl Who Fell Through a Hole In Her Sweater, will be staged February 15-17 at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The newly formed SWOSU Department of Communication and Theatre and its dramatic fraternity Alpha Psi Omega are joining forces to present the children’s theatre production at 7:30 p.m. each night in the Old Science Building Auditorium. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for non-SWOSU students, and free for individuals with an SWOSU I.D. card.

Written by Naomi Wallace and Bruce McLeod, the play is a witty adventure of a young girl named Noil who finds herself in a strange new place after she falls through her sweater one morning while readying herself for school. To return to her own existence, she must accomplish three and a half magical tasks.

According to faculty member Steve Strickler, Noil is clever and resourceful, and with some assistance from the narrator, Crumbs-In-Pocket, and a talking roach, she is well on her way to overcoming the bizarre characters of Lord Principal Plagueworthy (P.P.), The Mirror, The Window, The Door, and Itnose. The play takes place somewhere at the end of the hole in Noil’s sweater and takes the audience on a journey that seems very similar to Alice’s trip through Wonderland.

Strickler said the 45-minute comedy is sure to please audiences of all ages and is especially written for children.

The play is directed by SWOSU senior Heather King of Kingfisher. The cast includes: SaraJane Bidwell, Norman junior, as Noil; Jess Moore, Burns Flat sophomore, as Crumbs-In-Pocket; Amanda Tyson, Yukon junior, as Itnose and the Mirror; Ashley Howard, Fort Worth TX sophomore, as Window; Ottis Scrivner, Clarendon TX sophomore, as Lord Principal Plagueworthy; and Rachel Giacometti, Weatherford sophomore, as Door.
