'All My Sons'
MAILED: Oct. 1, 1999|
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's University Theatre will present nine performances of Arthur Miller's 1947 winner of the Drama Critic's Award, "All My Sons."
The play opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, in Kjer Theatre and also will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 15, 16 and 19-23 and at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 24.
"All My Sons" tells the tale of two families who ran a machine shop that made airplane parts in World War II. When the firm turns out defective parts, one partner gets sent to prison, while the other goes free and makes a lot of money. The plot twists and turns with a love affair, a son missing in the war and a catastrophic return home.
Dr. Terry Allen, professor of theatre arts, is directing "All My Sons" with the aid of assistant director senior Ingrid Nordstrom, Forest Lake, Minn.
Senior cast members include Tom Gross, Oconomowoc, Katherine Grosskopf, Fall Creek, Barry Anderson, Osseo, Ben Richgruber, Sparta, and Megan McGee, Oshkosh.
Junior Jody Gross, Merrill, sophomores Aaron Zook, Fall Creek, and Jordan Keller, Wisconsin Dells, and freshman Emily McPeck, Clayton, round out the university cast list.
The youngest cast member is Jonathan Knight, an elementary school student from Eau Claire and son of Dr. Robert Knight, associate professor of music and theatre arts.
Tickets, available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, are $8 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and children 17 and under, or $5 for students, faculty and staff with a university ID.
