TWU Theatre Sets A Place For The Dining Room


DENTON — The changing social mores over the course of three generations are played out in a single room as the Texas Woman’s University Theatre Department presents The Dining Room, a domestic comedy written by A.R. Gurney.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Nov. 12-15, with matinees at 4 p.m. Nov. 11 and 2 p.m. Nov. 16. All performances will take place in the Redbud Theatre on Bell Avenue on TWU’s Denton campus. Tickets are $5 for students and senior citizens and $10 for adults. For reservations and other information, call the TWU Theatre Box Office at (940) 898-2020.

The play consists of 18 vignettes, or “snapshots,” of the American family from all decades of the 20th Century. Each scene takes place in the dining room as the audience sees the dynamics of a room in which the “meals and deals” of life are conducted.

Eleven members of the cast must fill the shoes of the 57 different characters who come together to tell the stories of The Dining Room. Cast members include Casey Bellows of Rio Vista; Beau Bratcher of Whitesboro; Ben Derby of Denton; Ruth Engel of Keene; Stefanie Glenn, Jaymes Gregory and Camille Thompson, all of Fort Worth; Alicia Green of Sims; Lorenzo Hernandez of El Paso; Keri Sternin of Aubrey; and Jeff Winkler of McFarland, KS.

TWU’s production is directed by Sharon Benge, chairwoman of the TWU Drama Department. Set design is by TWU faculty member Michael Scudday, with costume design by Maranda Mang of Hewitt. Dennis Sloan of Dallas is in charge of prop design, and Jaymes Gregory directs sound design. Lighting design is by Amanda Kelts of Millarville, Alberta, Canada.

The production staff includes Jerry Dawson, technical director; stage manager Sasha Truman-McGonnell of Fort Belknap, MT; and assistant director Kari Schouveller of Wichita Falls.
