Southeastern Theatre to present Baby with the Bathwater
HAMMOND – The spring theatre season at Southeastern Louisiana University continues with "Baby with the Bathwater" at the university's Vonnie Borden Theatre on Tuesday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m.
Instructor of Acting and Directing Chad Winters directs the dark comedy written by Christopher Durang.
"This is our first Christopher Durang comedy," Winters said. "In this play he manages to combine farce, satire, absurdism and good-humored wackiness. You can be shocked and laughing out loud at the same time."
The play will run April 16-19. General admission tickets are $10; $6 for Southeastern faculty and staff, seniors and non-Southeastern students; and Southeastern students are admitted free with university I.D. Tickets are available at the Vonnie Borden box office in D Vickers Hall, 985-549-2115.
"Baby with the Bathwater" tells the story of John and Helen, two young parents trying to raise their child and keep their marriage together.
The main roles of Helen and John will be performed by Southeastern student Kayla Hurst of Springfield and Owen Sullivan of Diamondhead, Miss. The roles of Angela/Miss Pringle will be played by Janna Baza of Abita Springs; Harli Manuel of Gonzales, will play the parts of Nanny/Kate/Principal; the role of Cynthia will be performed by Jessica Baronich of Denham Springs; Dayton Wallace of Amite will play the Young Man; and Kristine Hooter of Covington will play Susan. Southeastern and Alpha Psi Omega alumnus Mark Bryan of Pensacola, Fla., will also perform in the play.
