CALDWELL – The College of Idaho Theatre Department presents "Season's Greetings," by Alan Ayckbourn on Nov. 12-14 and 19-21 at 7:30 p.m., and Nov. 22 at 2 p.m. in Langroise Studio Theatre on The C of I campus.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and non-C of I students, and free to C of I students, faculty and staff.
The story begins on Christmas Eve at the Bunker residence, where the tree still needs trimming, the children won't go to sleep, a drunk is in charge of the oven, and familiar family animosities are mounting. Into this tense holiday scene, a newcomer arrives, bringing a welcome breath of fresh air and a big bag of surprises under the tree.
Alan Ayckbourn is England's most popular contemporary playwright and "Season's Greetings" is among his most successful comedies.
The cast of students includes Shea Hall, Jeff Young, Andrew Lloyd, Amber Steele, Lani Boykin, Kirk Kerr, Miranda Drake, Tom Newby and Taylor Hawker. Assistant stage managers are Jessica McCormick and Kaitlin Ellithorpe.
The show is directed by Lynn Allison-Hofflund, set design by Michael Hartwell, costume design by Hannah Read, lighting design by Deborah Penrod, sound design by Seth Asa Sengel and stage management by Chelsea Stagg.
