Northwestern production 'Rehearsal for Murder' October 13-15

October 6, 2016

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Department of Fine Arts will present its fall production of “Rehearsal for Murder” on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 13-14, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 15, at 2 p.m. in Herod Hall Auditorium.

Tickets are $5 for students and Northwestern employees with a current ID, $10 for the general public and $2 for children under the age of 12. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

Kimberly Weast, professor of theatre arts and chair of the Department of Fine Arts, will be directing “Rehearsal for Murder,” written by D.D. Brooke and from the television play by Richard Levinson and William Link. This is a thrilling "theatrical" mystery that is set in an empty theatre in New York City. The dazzling, yet basically logical twists build to a climax and solution that will leave the audience members on the edges of their seats.

The production includes more than 30 cast and crew members.

“It gives numerous people with a variety of acting abilities an opportunity to participate,” Weast said. “I am very pleased with the work that these students have invested.”

This play offers a new twist on the production that was done 10 years ago in 2006. Theatre alumni Grant Bowen of Seattle, Washington; Sara Acosta, Woodward; Tracy Meza, Carmen; and Alica Hall, Alva; also have returned to assist with set design, construction, lighting and costume design.

Several people have been cast for this production who have taken on both cast and crew rolls. Cast members, their hometowns and classifications include:
