Champlain Theatre’s Playing Hard to Get:
Short Works 2011 Opens Nov. 2
Champlain Theatre’s second show of the fall season, Playing Hard to Get: Short Works 2011, directed by Joanne Farrell and Kim Jordan, will highlight the talents of Champlain College students, presenting six short contemporary plays about identity, attraction, romance, misunderstanding, and balancing on the precipice of possibility.
Each play flirts with the themes of desire, misunderstandings, and relationships. Strung together, Playing Hard To Get portrays a series of characters' bizarre and daring strategies to win a tug-of-war of the will and the heart. The six plays featured are:
- Precipice by William Mastrosimone,
- Daniel on a Thursday by Garth Wingfield,
- The Problem by A.R. Gurney,
- Anything for You by Cathy Celesia,
- Rosie in the Shadow of the Melrose by Craig Fols,
- Acorn by Daniel Graziana .
- There will also be an original devised theatre piece created and performed by the cast.
The Champlain College student actors in Playing Hard to Get: Short Works 2011 are: Sam Notelovitz, Molly O'Brien, Julia Kehr, Brian Arsenault, Will Saxe, Kayleigh Blanchette, Ashley Cook, Mike LeTourneau, Matt Hollar, Kristen Orlando, and David Bender.
