Readers Theatre Production at Somerset Community College to be Held March 26

Rehearsals are underway for Somerset Community Colleges next Readers Theatre production. The public is invited to join the Readers Theatre Company as they perform two short comic plays on Thursday, March 26 at 7:30 p.m. in Stoner Little Theatre, located in Stoner Hall on SCCs Somerset North Campus at 808 Monticello Street in Somerset. Admission to the performance is free.

The evening will begin with Prometheus the God(father) by Eric Coble, an entertaining look at how mankind acquired fire. The play introduces the Greek gods and provides a glimpse of them as the family they truly were. Included in the cast are Caitlyn Wheeler as Prometheus, Dana Floro as Zeus, Amber Frangos as Zeus secretary, Nichole Richardson as Apollo, Chris Harris as Epimetheus and Mary Taylor Huntsman as Hera. Karen Schooley is the Announcer. Pam Bowman, Crystal Sirk, Alyssa Burrows, Ken Greene and Jon Burlew round out the cast.

The performance concludes with Waiting for Bardot by local author Chris Harris. According to Harris, As much as Ive loved acting on the Stoner Little Theatre stage the last couple of years, my first love has always been writing, so its a thrill to see something Ive penned brought to life on that same stage. Theres no one better suited to play these parts than the talented actors we have right here in the community.

Harris Waiting for Bardot introduces us to a young man searching for his ideal of perfection as found in the sixties icon Brigitte Bardot. Chris Dickens plays the lead in Waiting for Bardot with Lisa Wright as his girlfriend and Jill Angelle as a mystery woman. Mark Isham is director of the Readers Theatre Company.
