John Nara, instructor of theatre, will direct. Musical direction will be by Sean Wright with choreography by Monica Henry.
The production will run Sept. 28-30 and Oct. 4-6. Curtain times will be at 7:30 p.m., except for the 2 p.m. matinee performance on the 30th. All performances will be at the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center on USA South Drive.
