Theater Season Opens Sept. 20

August 25, 2012

The Lindenwood University Theatre Department will open its 2012-13 season with Neil LaBute’s romantic comedy-drama The Shape of Things at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 20-22, and at 2 p.m. on Sept. 23 in Lindenwood’s Emerson Black Box Theater. General admission tickets are $10 at the Lindenwood University Box Office.

The Emerson Theater and the Box Office are located in the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts at 2300 West Clay St. in St. Charles, just west of First Capitol Drive. For tickets or more information, call the Box Office at 636-949-4433.

The play follows a tumultuous relationship between English literature major Adam (Billy Walkenhorst) and attractive graduate art student Evelyn (Kelsey Amann) and the changes he undergoes during the course of it. The cast is rounded out by Josh Wolk as Phillip and Cassie Ballard as Jenny, Adam’s friends. The results are sure to provoke conversations on the concept of art imitating life and visa versa.

The Shape of Things debuted on stage in 2001 in London and was made into a movie in 2003, also written and directed by LeBute, starring Rachel Weisz and Paul Rudd.

“Place coeds in a room pursuing ‘art’ and ‘truth’ while they struggle with their own personal morality, and you have The Shape of Things,” said Director Lyndsay Somers Hicks.

Stage manager and assistant stage manager are Courney McDaniel and Lindsey Conklin, respectively. Set design is by Pippin McGowan with costumes designed by Donna Northcott, lighting design by Tim Poertner, and prop design by Krista Tettaton.

Lindenwood University, founded in 1827, is an independent liberal arts university offering more than 120 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in diverse areas of study in traditional and accelerated formats. Lindenwood operates a residential campus in historic St. Charles, as well numerous extension sites throughout the St. Louis Metropolitan Area.
