The St. Norbert College theatre program will host the production "Book of Days" by Pulitzer and Tony-winning author Landford Wilson April 16-18 and April 22-24 in the Webb Theatre, Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts at St. Norbert.

All shows will be held at 7:30 p.m. with the exception of the April 18 show, which will be at 2 p.m. A discussion with the cast will follow the April 18 performance.

The production is directed by professor emeritus Kelly Collum who spent more than 30 years at the college. Current St. Norbert College director of theatre studies Stephen Rupsch felt students would benefit from Collum's experience. Scenography will be handled by assistant professor of theatre studies April Beiswenger.

When murder roars through a small Missouri town, Ruth Hoch begins her own quest to find truth and honesty amid small-town jealousies, religion, greed and lies. This tornado of a play propels you through its events like a page-turning mystery.

The cast includes Alex Pajor (Glen Ellyn, Ill.), Amanda Cormican (West Allis, Wis.), Brandon Ponschock (Appleton, Wis.), James Limon (Sydney, Australia), Karolyn Preiss (Sartell, Minn.), Kelly Schmidt (Madison, Wis), Kevin Gonring (Whitefish Bay, Wis.), Kevin O'Connell (Des Plaines, Ill.), Kim Hansen (Rosemount, Minn.), Lindsay Stock (St. Charles, Ill.), Marla Jacob (Aurora, Ill.), Seth Wanta (Stevens Point, Wis.).
