LCC’s Performing Arts is showcasing “Everybody,” a fun take on the medieval play “Everyman,” in the Black Box Theatre in the Gannon Building.
The performances are Wednesday, Nov. 16 through the Saturday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. each evening, followed by a matinee on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 2 p.m.
“Everyman,” originally written in the 15th century, is a play in which “Everyman” finds who will accompany him to “Death.”
“In this play, ‘Everybody’ also is about to die, but the actor playing ‘Everybody’ is chosen by lottery every night,” Director Andy Callis said. “And so are four other roles. So, it's a different show every night. It's actually a hilarious show, too, given the subject matter.”
Callis said he enjoyed seeing the unique characters created for the “Somebodies” roles.
“It's been great to spend the last few months laughing out loud at rehearsals,” Callis said. “I hope that the hilarious and the sad parts ‘land’ when it's performed. I hope the audience finds tears, laughter and much to ponder in this story.”
Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for seniors and LCC faculty/staff, and $15 for general admission. Tickets will be sold at the door. Cash and credit cards are accepted.
