Tabor announces ‘Women of Lockerbie’ cast

Tabor College has announced the cast for ?The Women of Lockerbie,? a poetic drama inspired by events surrounding the 1988 crash of Pan Am Flight 103 in Lockerbie, Scotland.

The drama will be performed at 7:30 p.m. March 5, 6 and 7, in the Theatre Lab located in the lower level of the H.W. Lohrenz Building.

Cast members include Aaron Epp, Henderson, Neb.; Allison Issac, Visalia, Calif.; Kirsten Krehbiel, Kingman; Josh Paulus, Hillsboro; Tasheena Ruzinsky, Hillsboro; Brianne Tucker, Wichita; and Kayla Vix, Maize.

The play is directed by Judy Harder, associate professor of communications and drama.

?The plot unfolds as a grieving mother from New Jersey roams the hills near Lockerbie determined to find her son?s remains, which were lost in the crash,? Harder said.

?She and her husband meet several women from the local community who are also determined to respond to this tragic event that killed 270 people.?

Harder added: ?As the women and the couple cross paths, they recognize the reality of grief, hatred and despair. Yet, in the midst of that reality, hope is not extinguished, acts of kindness continue, and others sense that hatred will not have the last word in Lockerbie.?

Seating is limited for this production. Tickets are $5 for students and $7.50 general admission, and may be purchased by calling the Student Life Office at 620-947-3121, ext. 1033.
