The St. Norbert College theatre program will host the student production "The Nina Variations" by Steven Dietz starting Thursday, Nov. 4 through Saturday, Nov. 6 in the Webb Theatre, Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus.

In this funny, fierce and heartbreaking homage to THE SEAGULL, Steven Dietz puts Chekhov's star-crossed lovers in a room and doesn't let them out. Through several variations on their famous final scene, Nina (a young actress) and Treplev (a young writer), pit their vibrant wit and soaring passions against one another in a fast-paced tour de force of romantic entanglement.

Student Danielle Kapolnek (Chicago, Il.) directs fellow students Amanda Cormican (Milwaukee, Wis.) and Alex Pajor (Glen Ellyn, Ill.) Additionally, Cormican is overseeing scenic design, costumes by Alicia Skrivanie (Green Bay, Wis.) and lighting by Deborah Smrz (Fish Creek, Wis).

The St. Norbert College theatre program requires all majors to complete a capstone project sometime during their senior year. Students can either work on existing productions or create their own to fully engage their education experience.

All shows will be held at 7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the St. Norbert College ticket office at (920) 403-3950, or visit http://www.snc.edu/performingarts.
