TWU Drama presents ‘Eleemosynary’


DENTON — The struggle of three generations of women to bridge the distance in their relationships unfolds as the Texas Woman’s University Drama Department opens its 2006-07 season with Lee Blessing’s “Eleemosynary.”

Performances will be at 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 20-21, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22. All performances will take place in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Pioneer Circle and Oakland Street on TWU’s Denton campus. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. For reservations or more information, call the TWU Box Office at (940) 898-2020.

The play’s 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.
