PCC Theater Arts produces play focused on ‘Everyman’
Photos and Story by James Hill
PCC’s Theatre Arts Program presents the play “Everyman” by Anonymous (15th Century.). Crossing the gulf of centuries from medieval times to today, “Everyman” deals with timeless issues; it asks the important question: When you die, what really matters and what of our earthly life is lasting and significant?
Told with larger than life puppets and set in a metaphysical landscape of mystery and intrigue, this 600 year-old play follows the journey of the character Everyman, who is tasked by Death to meet God his Maker for a reckoning. Of special interest to this contemporary and exciting production are the puppet designs of guest artist Shae Uisna and the set design of Jamie Tait.
This production starts runs 7:30 p.m., Friday-Saturday, May 4-5 and May 11-12. There is a free matinee performance at 11 a.m., Thursday, May 10 and a final matinee performance at 2 p.m., Sunday, May 13. Performances will be held at the Performing Arts Center at Sylvania Campus. Tickets are available a half-hour before performances at the box office. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors, students and staff, and $5 for groups of 12 or more.
For tickets, call (971) 722-4949.
Behind the scenes, Patrick Tangredi directs, Dan Hays is in charge of lighting, and Erin Gilday and Lauren Darms are leading costume design.
