January 29, 2016

The Northwestern Oklahoma State University Department of Fine Arts will present “Special Guest” in the Herod Hall Auditorium on the Alva campus Friday, Feb. 12, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 13, at 2 p.m.

“Special Guest,” written by Donald Elser, is about a young couple looking toward the future by planning their wedding, but the grief of an old farm couple stuck in the past will weave the stories into a web of mystery and revenge.

“The audience will definitely be treated to a revenge tale that is guaranteed to leave them on the edge of their seats,” said Director Trenton Judd, Sapulpa senior majoring in speech-theatre.

Judd is directing this play his last semester of his college career to fulfill a capstone requirement of speech-theatre majors.Trenton chose “Special Guest” because he enjoys the story line and was anxious to bring the complex characters to life.

The Special Guest cast includes five members: Nora will be played by Michelle Penner, Cherokee grad student. John will be played Ken Kelsey, a Northwestern instructor of history and fine arts from Fairview. Edward will be played by Micah Roberts, Newkirk senior majoring in English. Elaine will be played by Taylor Morris, Pacoima, California, junior majoring in mass communication. Robert will be played by Mickey Jordan, Iowa Park, Texas, junior majoring in speech-theatre.

The crew includes Stage manager Tori Hurley, Sheffield, Iowa, sophomore majoring in speech-theatre, and the members of the Theatre Production class will be the stage crew.

Admission is $1 for students and $2 for Northwestern employees and the general public.
