     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University Theatre will present “The Oldest Profession,” one of the funniest and most poignant plays to come from the pen of Paula Vogel, Feb. 13-17 at Vonnie Borden Theatre.

     Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets, available in the theater box office in D Vickers Hall, are $10, adults, and $6, senior citizens, Southeastern faculty and staff, and non-Southeastern students. Southeastern students are admitted free with university ID.

     Directed by Southeastern Music and Dramatic Arts Instructor Selisa Hue, the play follows the lives of five octogenarian prostitutes as they struggle to make a living working the streets -- and nursing homes! -- of New York, while yearning for the old days of New Orleans’ Storyville. 

     The play stars Whitney Allen and Erin Rode of Hammond, Stephanie Delcambre and Katie Zirkenbach of Metairie, and Lindsey Mayo of Mandeville. Ashley Hicks of Baker is understudy.

     The play is rated R. For additional information, contact the Department of Music and Dramatic Arts, 985-549-2184.
