Senior College Players Present Unique Anniversary Play

by Rosabelle Tifft 

Be ready for some surprises as the Senior College Players present their 10th Anniversary play, written and directed by Ross Timberlake, on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 18 and 19, at the McLaughlin Auditorium beginning at 7 pm.

You’ll see all cast members participating as their Radio Theater (WMSC) is given the mandate to become a live TV show and the Readers will have to act. Then the fun begins. Narrators, soon to be TV anchors, Jim McLean and Rosabelle Tifft, announce vignettes in the midst of humorous banter as cast members slip in, and possibly out of character.

Here are a few of the vignettes you’ll see:

  • What’s on TV” finds narrator Jim McLean challenged by the TV remote, and changing channels to the delight of the audience as Roberta Taylor, Arita Zitolli, Barb Dion and Rosabelle Tifft turn their commentary into a hilarious show.

  •  Little Something for the Ducks” features Mark Antell as a depressed elderly gentleman who thinks he has nothing to live for. A caring elderly woman, played by Lorrie Hoeh, offers hope that better days are coming.
