Tabor drama dept. releases fall cast

The Tabor College music and drama departments have announced the cast for the upcoming performances of “Into the Woods.”

The musical follows the adventures of well-known fairy tale characters, such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack, and challenges the common “happily ever after” ending.

“The musical explores some of the complexities of fairy tales, and of getting our wishes,” said Judy Harder, associate professor of communications and drama. Harder will direct the cast and crew.

Music direction will be given by Brad Vogel, associate professor of choral music, who will be joined by Jenny Epp, Hillsboro, on piano and Luke Thielen, Quinter, on percussion.

Student assistants are: Jennifer Hope, McPherson; Matt Peiper, Marion, Iowa; Sharon Toews, Hesston; and Rebecca Pederson, Gretna, Neb.

Jonah Kliewer, professor emeritus of music, will fill the role of the narrator.

Performances will take place homecoming weekend, Oct. 19 to 22, in the Tabor College Chapel-Auditorium.

The Oct. 19 to 21 performances will begin at 7:30 p.m., and the Sunday performance will begin at 2 p.m.

All seats are reserved and seating is limited.

Ticket prices are $8.50/general seating and $5/students. Reservations must be made by calling the Tabor College Student Development Office at 947-3121 ext. 1033.
