January 16, 2006

DELAWARE, Ohio -- Jose Rivera's "Marisol" will be performed by Ohio Wesleyan University's Department of Theatre and Dance on Feb. 3, 4, 10, and 11 at 8 p.m. and on Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. in Chappelear Drama Center's intimate Studio Theatre (45 Rowland Ave., Delaware).

In Rivera's 1993 Obie award winning play, a young woman is abandoned by her guardian angel and left to fend for herself in a world where skinheads set the homeless on fire, people are tortured for being over their credit limit and men get pregnant.

This production is directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre and Dance Edward Kahn and features nine Ohio Wesleyan student-actors: seniors Casey Phillips and Michelle Tomlin; juniors Nicole Perez-Daple, Julia Albing, Kevin Barron and Eric Magnus; sophomores Carly Eades and Brandon McMickens; and freshman Katie Atkinson.

The scenery is designed by Ohio Wesleyan junior Corey Hinshaw, lighting is designed by Professor and Chairman of Theatre and Dance D. Glen Vanderbilt Jr., and costumes are designed by Jacqueline Shelley.

Tickets are $7 for general admission, $6 for OWU faculty and staff and $5 for students. Call 740-368-3855 for tickets or more information. The production contains adult themes and language, theatrical smoke, and gun shots.
