Posted Sep 26th, 2014 by Heather Hoffman  Category: Arts & Entertainment


Lourdes University Drama Society will kick off its 2014-15 season with an evening of dramatic readings with members of Actors Collaborative Toledo (ACT). Scenes will include the one-act play, A Separate Peace, by Tom Stoppard, featuring members of both groups. ACT will also present several short scenes written by Christopher Durang. At the conclusion of the performances, the audience will have a chance to participate in a question and answer period with the actors.

Drama Society advisor, Keith Ramsdell, noted how excited he is to be partnering with Actors Collaborative Toledo for the first time. “ACT and the Drama Society share a common mission for educational theatre and elevating the performing arts in the Toledo area. Hopefully, this is just the first of many opportunities our groups will have to work together.” Cast members will include Kate Argow, Barbara Barkan, Jeff Bell, Cindy Bilby and John DuVall from ACT, as well as Lou Ann Flick, Courtney Gilliland and Jenna Jennewine from the Drama Society.

Performances will take place in the Franciscan Center Theatre on Friday, October 3 and Saturday, October 4 starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door prior to each performance or in advance by calling the Franciscan Center box office at 419-824-3999.
