College's 2011-2012 Theatre Season Opens with Comedy of Suspicion

Published on: September 19, 2011



You’re the detective in Lone Star College-Montgomery’s Center for the Arts first show of the 2011-2012 theatre season, “Private Eyes,” by Steven Dietz. And just when you think you have it figured out, something new happens to change your mind!
 
“This is an exciting venture for the LSC-Montgomery drama program,” said Chase Waites, professor of drama at LSC-Montgomery and director of the production. “This play is full of mystery and intrigue, and nothing is truly quite what it seems. When you see the play keep these things in mind: Nothing is real. Believe everything. And enjoy!”
 
“Private Eyes” runs Thursday through Saturday, October 13-15, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee performance on Saturday, October 15 at 2 p.m. Additionally, there will be a $5 Preview Night on Wednesday, October 12, at 5:30 p.m.

In the play, Matthew’s wife, Lisa, is having an affair with Adrian, a British theatre director. Or perhaps the affair is part of the play being rehearsed. Or perhaps Matthew has imagined all of it simply to have something to report to Frank, his therapist. Nothing is ever quite what it seems in “Private Eyes.”

The cast members include Joey Hancock, Tanner Bench, Mackenzie Haffey, Ashley Bolden, and Crystal Stampes.
 
The production, which is a participating entry for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, contains adult language and situations and is not recommended for younger audiences.
 
Individual tickets for performances are $10 for general admission, $7 for seniors, and $5 for student, staff, or faculty. All tickets to Preview Night performance are $5.

Season tickets, which include tickets to “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” in April 2012 and “Xanadu” in June 2012, can be purchased for only $35. Season ticket holders receive name recognition in all theatre programs and reserved seating.
