Concord Theatre Presenting 'Vanities'

ATHENS – Concord Theatre will present the comedy “Vanities” in the H. C. Paul Theatre of Concord University’s Alexander Fine Arts Center Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2010 through Saturday, Nov. 13, 2010. Performances begin at 8 p.m. each evening.

“Vanities,” by Jack Heifner, traces the story of three girls from Texas on their journey from high school to adulthood. The three-act play spotlights the trio as cheerleaders, then sorority sisters, and finally, young women.

The cast includes four Concord University students: senior Christin Walker as Mary; sophomore Ainsley Miller as Joanne; and freshmen Cortney Vannatter and Chelsey Rowe sharing the role of Kathy. Rowe will perform on Wednesday and Friday and Vannatter will perform on Thursday and Saturday.

The performance is directed and designed by Concord University Professor of Communication Arts Dr. Thomas Gambill.

The production team includes Michael Cork, shop coordinator and master carpenter; Greg Stamp, master carpenter and lights; Miller, visuals and sound; and Walker, costume design and props. The Theatre Workshop is in charge of set construction.

The play is being produced at Concord by special arrangements with Samuel French, Inc., New York, NY.

Admission is $5 for adults. Concord University faculty, staff and students will be admitted free-of-charge.

A limited number of tickets are available for each performance of “Vanities.” Tickets may be reserved through the Concord University Box Office at www.ConcordUEvents.com or by calling (304) 384-5101 or e-mailing BoxOffice@concord.edu. The Box Office will open at 7 p.m. for ticket sales prior to each performance.
