Young cast reads “Candida”

by carolyn with no comments

Director Joy Pace has cast a young, professional group of actors for the December 13th staged reading of Candida by British  playwright, George Bernard Shaw.  The experience beefs up the resumes of these professionals, engages them in a modern classic read in a perhaps novel format (to the audience), the staged reading, and adds to the training needed to compete for jobs in two top Louisiana industries:  cinema and tourism.

McNeese State U. undergrads play all roles but one.  Jonathon Richards is the Reverend James Morrell; Elise Hamilton is Candida; Hayley Smith is Miss Proserpine; Ronnie Doyle is Eugene Marchbanks; and, Cameron Scallan is the Reverend Alexander Mills.  In addition, Joey Frazier, Pres. of the Board of The Lake Charles Little Theatre & longtime fixture on the region’s theatre scene, plays the role of Candida’s colorful Dad, Mr. Burgess.

Join Itinerant Theatre for Candida:  7pm, Thursday, December 13, Attic Theatre (rm. 313), Central School A&H Center.  $8.  Limited seating.  For tickets & info:  this website or call 337.436.6275.

On December 13th Itinerant Theatre stages a READING of “Candida” by George Bernard Shaw.  What an opportunity to relish and savor one of the west’s best and maddeningly ever-current writers. A self- made man with an unrelenting ability to see through the self-conceit and self-deceit of class and entitlement, George Bernard Shaw pierces to the heart of the matter at hand.  A man dedicated to honesty and success based on ability and hard work can only intrigue and entertain.  Join us at The Attic Theatre (a black box theatre on Central School’s 3rd floor), 7pm, Thursday, Dec. 13.  For a modest charge and modest refreshment enjoy a play immodest in size and scope.  Joy Pace directs “Candida” with a young, professional cast. Join us.
