title refers to a word the granddaughter, Echo (played by
Jamie Hogue of Brownwood), must spell in order to win the
national spelling bee. There’s a deeper meaning, however.
The word “eleemosynary” means “charitable”
and is a reference to the apparent inability of Echo’s
mother, Artie (Christina Williams of Austin), to give of herself
to either her daughter or her mother, Dorthea (Michelle Callaway
of Weatherford), from whom she is estranged.
Dr. Tony Medlin,
assistant professor of drama, directs the TWU production.
Laticia Bell of Hickory Creek is the stage manager. Erica
Cole of Denton works both on set design (with Sherrie Wollenhaupt
of Lewisville) and lights (with Eric Aguilar of Midlothian).
Lindsay Turman of Lamesa is in charge of costumes and props.
TWU Drama continues
its season in November with the Shakespearean classic, “The
Merry Wives of Windsor” and “The Heiress”
in March. The popular musical, “The Fantasticks,”
will serve as the official gala opening of the new Redbud
Theater on TWU’s Denton campus in April 2007. For more
