St. Norbert College Theatre Studies to Present “The Balcony Scene”

From St. Norbert College, April 13, 2016
by Erich Wegenke, erich.wegenke@snc.edu , 920-403-3089

The St. Norbert College theatre program will present Will Calhoun's play "The Balcony Scene" as a senior capstone project. Performances will take place Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 1, at 2 p.m., in the Drama Room in the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus.

"The Balcony Scene" tells the story of an unexpected meeting between two individuals. Alvin has had it. He sees civilization crumbling around him and wants no part of it. The only place he feels safe is inside his Chicago high-rise apartment, so that's where he stays until Karen moves in next door. She is a die-hard optimist with a high-pressure job and a relentless ex-boyfriend who won't take no for an answer. Alvin and Karen meet on their adjoining balconies and form a friendship that sets their two worlds on a collision course.

Olivia D'Andrea (Chicago, Ill.) will direct the production, with scenography by Hannah Nathan (Fort Atkinson, Wis.). Both are theatre studies students and graduating seniors. The capstone project for theatre studies majors at St. Norbert College is an opportunity for students to create their own work of theatre as a culmination of their studies.

The crew and cast for the show include Cheyenne Andrus (De Pere, Wis.), Olivia D'Andrea (Chicago, Ill.), Adam Mayrer (Medford, Wis.), Hannah Nathan (Fort Atkinson, Wis.), Morgan Pennings (Navarino, Wis.), Alyssa Schinner (Oostburg, Wis.) and Logan Thomas (Baileys Harbor, Wis.).

Admission is free and open to the public, and no tickets are required. However, seating is limited, so it is best to arrive early. There will be no late seating.
