The Wells College Theatre & Dance Department is proud to present the Spring 2017 production, "Juvie," written by Jerome McDonough and directed by Mary Losurdo '14. "Juvie" will be performed in the auditorium of Barler Hall on the Wells College campus on Friday, February 10, and Saturday, February 11. The house will open at 7:00 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 p.m.
"Juvie" is this year's February Alumni Production featuring director Mary Losurdo from the Wells class of 2014. Each February, the Department of Theatre and Dance invites an alumnus/alumna of Wells to participate in a production as a playwright, director, choreographer, actor, dancer or designer. Mary Losurdo is currently living and working in Los Angeles, Calif., where she leads an a cappella group and where she has worked with the Pantages Theatre and the Murder Mystery Company. Mary says of her Wells education, "I was challenged to see my surroundings differently, and to see the world as a stage."
The set is designed by Wells College's Technical Director Patti Goebel. The sound is managed by Riley Maassen '18 with lighting by Miyu Sugisaki '18. The costumes are coordinated by Sabrina Fowler '18 and the stage manager is Katelyn Costello '18. The cast is comprised of 15 student actors of all disciplines and classes.
