Bethel College presents “Lost in Yonkers,” by Neil Simon and directed by Theatre Department Chair Richard Young. Performances will be Oct. 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center. The performance on Oct. 8 is interpreted for the d/Deaf community. The cost is $15 for adults and $13 for students and seniors.
While rich in the comedy for which Simon is famous, it grapples with painful family scars. Set during World War II, two young brothers are sent to live with their formidable grandmother. Full of laughter, tears and insight; it’s a bravura performance.
“This is an astounding play. If it doesn’t touch your heart, then there is a good chance you don’t have one,” says Young.
The theater department also has two new staff members who will be assisting with “Lost in Yonkers,” Scenic Designer and Technical Director Johan Godwaldt and newly hired, Production Manager Don Hunter (’06).
For more information, call 574.807.7747, or to purchase tickets call 574.807.7080, Mon. – Fri., 1 – 5 p.m.
