The St. Norbert College theatre program will host the production "Hay Fever" by Noel Coward from Friday, April 8, through Saturday, April 16, in the Webb Theatre, Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus.

All shows will be held at 7:30 p.m. with the exception of April 10, which has a 2 p.m. show time, with a discussion to follow this matinee performance with the cast and crew.

"Hay Fever" tells the story of Judith Bliss, a retired actress, and her husband, David, a novelist. Hoping for a quiet weekend in the country, they find this impossible when their high-spirited children, Simon and Sorel, have quests of their own.

Stephen Rupsch, assistant professor of theatre studies and director of theatre, will direct the production. Scenery and costumes will be handled by April Beiswenger, assistant professor of theatre studies, with lighting by Deborah Smrz, a senior theatre studies major from Fish Creek, Wis.

The cast includes Amanda Cormican (West Allis, Wis.), Cory Estreen (Pulaski, Wis.), Kevin Gonring (Whitefish Bay, Wis.), Danielle Kapolnek (Park Ridge, Ill.), Lily Larsen (Sturgeon Bay, Wis.), Scott Reagh (Portage, Wis.), Jillian Pequet (Waukesha, Wis.), Tanya Sue Pollard (Vulcan, Mich.), Clara Rose (Milwaukee, Wis.), and Greg Umhoefer (Green Bay, Wis.),
