Lake Erie College Theatre Department to present “Marcus is Walking”
Emotions of love and friendship will be explored during the The Lake Erie College spring theatre production of “Marcus is Walking.” Audiences can view the production at 7:30 p.m. April 13-14 and April 19-21 and at 2:30 p.m. April 22. The production will be held in the C.K. Rickel Theatre of the Fine Arts Building.
On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the car, the play examines the emotional landscape we roam as we travel in our cars. Control, navigation, love and escape are some of the themes explored. A protective father shepherds his son through the neighborhood on Halloween; an actor on his way to perform Hamlet provokes a rear-end collision and confrontation with a Czech émigré cab driver and a devastated businessman strikes up an unlikely alliance with a homeless woman who sleeps in his car.
Nine Lake Erie students and one alumnus make up the cast, which includes, Nicki Clouse, Tricia Lilliman, Maggie Leach, Laken Piercy, Laura Osborne, Italy Picucci-Rich, Stephen Marra, Garrett Fausnaught, Tommy Smolko and Joe Fath.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and non-LEC students. Though the performance is free for Lake Erie College students, faculty and staff, reservations do need to be made. To make a reservation, call the box office at 440-375-7450 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Free parking is located off Gillett Street near Philips Osborne School.
