Cameron University to present domestic comedy “Living Together”

Cameron University’s Department of Art, Music, and Theatre Arts continues its 2018-2019 theatre season, celebrating “Where Everything Comes Together,” with Alan Ayckbourn’s “Living Together.” The domestic comedy, set in 1975, will be presented in the Studio Theatre from November 15-18. The curtain goes up on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for senior citizens, military, Cameron faculty and staff, and non-Cameron students. CU students receive one free admission with their CU I.D Tickets can be reserved by calling the box office at 580-581-2478.

“Living Together” is the second play in Ayckbourn’s famed Norman Conquest trilogy. The action takes place in the living room of an old Victorian home during a weekend in the country. Extramarital affairs, mismatched relationships and one of the funniest uses of the word “ummm” make “Living Together” a hilarious yet poignant look at middle class life. This production contains material that some people may find objectionable.

Cole Nowlin, Anadarko, leads the cast as Norman, whose antics keep the action moving. He is joined by Cierra Renee as Ruth, Abbey Rinestine as Sarah, and MacEwan Sanders as Tom. All are from Lawton. Rounding out the cast are Payton Williams, Comanche, as Reg, and Joy Christie, Augusta, Ga., as Annie.

Student designers for the production are Jacob Parkhurst, Lawton, property designer; Hunter Pinkerton, Lawton, sound designer and sound board operator; and Kelsey Hood, Oklahoma City, costume and make-up designer. Dakota Barbee, Walters, is the stage manager. Judd Vermillion, Assistant Professor, is the lighting and scenic designer. The production is directed by Scott Richard Klein, Chair of the Department of Art, Music, and Theatre Arts.

The crew also includes Emily Whatley, Duke, light board operator, and Jessica Ramon, Midlothian, Texas, house manager. Nina Alexandra Pebeahsy, Lawton, assists with wardrobe, and Celeste Powell, Lawton, mans the box office.
