TAMU-C Playhouse Presents:
"A Wrinkle in Time"
by: Bobby McDonald
It's an adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's, "A Wrinkle in Time," by James Sie, that the TAMU-C Playhouse has chosen for their fall production, and you're sure to enjoy the science fiction thriller, that involves several members of the cast and crew, with Sulphur Springs connections. Both the Assistant Lighting & Sound Designer and Assistant Stage Manager, Brandon Fain, and Cast Member, Keegan Stalcup, are products of the Sulphur Springs Theater Arts Program at SSHS. And, interestingly, Stalcup wears a SSHS letter jacket in the production!
L'Engle's book, written in 1959-60, portrays the Murry family, whose father is a "mad" scientist and he's been cast into another world, called Camazotz, where he is inaccessible to his wife and children. However, with a visit to the woods and a haunted house, his children, Meg and Charles Walker, along with friend, Calvin O'Keefe, are taken to the planet Camazotz, and find their father. But, the mission is not without its peril and the capture of the brilliant, Charles Walker. Meg must return to the planet alone and manage to rescue, her little brother, Charles Walker, with her only resource of "love!"
The production is an action-filled escape that has deep characterization and the quality that we've grown to expect from the TAMU-C Playhouse, in their productions. This production is directed by Carrie Klypchak, using an extremely talented cast and crew.
Shows are scheduled for Saturday night, November 17th, at 6:00 p.m., and a Sunday matinee, at 3:00 p.m., Sunday, November 18th.
Reservations can be obtained by contacting the University Playhouse Box Office, at (903)886-5900.
