'Exit the Body' debuts Feb. 16

February 8, 2012

Jewel thieves will enter Herod Hall Auditorium for “Exit the Body,” a play by Fred Carmichael, which debuts Feb. 16-17, at 7:30 p.m. and on Feb. 18, at 2 p.m., presented by the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Theatre program.

General admission is $5, $3 for Northwestern faculty and staff and $1 for Northwestern students.

The public is invited to attend.

A mystery writer rents a New England house that is the rendezvous point for some jewel thieves. The focal point of the set is the closet, which opens into a living room and a library. A body found in the closet promptly disappears only to be succeeded by another. The hunt for the jewels reaches a climax when four couples unknown to each other turn up to search. Not since the days of Mack Sennett has there been such a hilarious series of entrances and exits.

The cast is as follows:

Lillian Seymour – Josi Hasenauer, Wallace, Neb., junior; Jenny – Sara Acosta, Woodward junior; Randolph – Brenen Hankins, Alva freshman; Hellen O’Toole – Kristina Benson, Cherokee senior; Kate Bixley – Jordan Lyles, Sapulpa freshman; Crane Hammond – Kasey Russell, Texhoma graduate student; Vernon Cookley – Dalton Lamberth, Sharon sophomore; Lyle Rogers – Quintin Wray, Hitchcock freshman; Philip Smith – Hanson Long, Waynoka freshman; and Richard Hammond – Patrick Wilson, Aubrey, Texas, sophomore.
