Lone Star College Kingwood News
Published on: November 01, 2013 Lone Star College-Kingwoods Theatre Department will produce an original drama production written by a Texas playwright.
Jackie Rosenfelds work, Corner Lot will debut on LSC-Kingwoods stage Nov. 13-16 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 16-17 at 2 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Black Box. Rosenfeld is a senior lecturer at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. This is the first time that this play will be produced.
We havent produced an original full-length work since fall 2005, said Eric C. Skiles, artistic director of theatre. It was time to reach out to our talented local playwrights and find a new play to produce.
Corner Lot depicts the lives of a young couple, Nick and Lauren, who are experiencing a culture shock as they attempt to sell Nicks grandfathers house in a small West Texas town. While trying to sell the house, they discover a small memorial or Descanso, in the corner of the yard. This production takes a close look at doing the right thing even when doing the right thing is unpopular.
This is a great example of modern American realism. The characters are very engaging and the story is quite remarkable, Skiles said. This is the type of play that shows us how a simple thing can redirect our entire lives.
The cast is comprised of LSC-Kingwood students: Carl Hailey as Nick; Hailey Orman playing Lauren; Jessy Luan Valladares Solorzano as Clementina; and Thomas Madison playing Rusty. The production team includes Skiles, director; Kalliope P. Vlahos, designer; Jordan Everett, stage manager; Natalie Jinks, sound technician; Garrett Tatum, light technician; and Corey Bischalaney, backstage crew.
Corner Lot tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for senior citizens age 55 and older, and $5 for students. Ticket reservations are strongly recommended. There is no late seating for the Black Box Theatre. For more information, call 281-312-1532 or email KWBox@LoneStar. …
