Greensboro College Theatre Presents "A Company of Wayward Saints" March 28-29

"GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro College Theatre presents "A Company of Wayward Saints" March 28-29 in the Annie Sellars Jordan Parlor Theatre in Main Building on campus.

Performances are at 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, March 28, and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 29. Tickets are $10 adults, $8 seniors and non-GC students. Reserve tickets by calling 336-272-7102, ext. 5242, or emailing

The play was written by George Herman and is directed by GC directing students under the supervision of Dan Seaman, instructor of theatre.

In the play, a commedia dell'arte group, far from home and out of money, seeks to perform so as to curry favor with a nobleman. The group presents the history of humanity, from the Garden of Eden to Everyman in birth, adolescence, marriage, and death.

Along the way they enact other wayward adventures such as the assassination of Julius Caesar and the homecoming of Odysseus. It is a fine mosaic of life redeemed by humor and human understanding.

Greensboro College's Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.

The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.
