Theatre Roanoke College Presents Spring Production

SALEM, Va. - Theatre Roanoke College presents its spring production, “Four Dogs and a Bone,” Wednesday - Saturday, April 2-5, at 8 p.m. in Olin Theater. Tickets are $7 for the general public and $5 for senior citizens and students. To purchase tickets or for further information, please call the Olin Box Office Monday through Friday, 1-4 p.m. at (540) 375-2333.

Written by Academy Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winner John Patrick Shanley, "Four Dogs and a Bone" is a portrait of the movie business behind the scenes. The producer has money concerns, the writer has artistic concerns, and the competing actresses have ego concerns. Their struggles make up this hilarious, smart, biting satire. This comedy is meant for mature audiences.

The cast includes Lisa-Sun Gresham, a junior theatre and sociology double major from Wilton, Conn.; Cory Lawson, a senior theatre major from Roanoke; Samantha Clifford, a sophomore theatre major from Rumson, N.J; and Jake Bozek, a junior English major from Clifton. The play is directed by Lisa C. Warren, associate professor in the Fine Arts department. The set and lighting are designed by George Arthur, teaching associate in theatre and Jennie Ruhland, teaching associate in theatre.

Roanoke College, the country's second oldest Lutheran-related college, is an independent, co-educational, four-year liberal arts college. Roanoke is one of just 276 colleges nationwide with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest and most prestigious honor society. The Princeton Review names Roanoke as one of the “best in the Southeast.” Roanoke's 2,000 students represent 40 states across the U.S. and 26 foreign countries.
