“Vanities” is laugh-out-loud coming-of-age tale

March 30, 2010

McDaniel College’s Department of Theatre Arts presents “Vanities,” an astute, thought-provoking, laugh-out-loud tale of an innocent America coming of age, 7:30 p.m. April 14-17 in WMC Alumni Hall.

The play is open to the public. Tickets are $7 for adults; $5 for seniors, students, and the McDaniel community. For information, contact the Box Office by calling 410-857-2448 or visiting www.mcdaniel.edu/3594.htm.

“Vanities” captures a coming-of-age tale as seen through the eyes of three Texas girls from the early ’60s to the mid-’70s. In 1963, Joanne, Kathy and Mary are vivacious cheerleaders. Five years later in their college sorority house, they confront their futures with nervous jauntiness. In 1974, they reunite briefly in New York to find their lives have diverged and their friendship is strained and ambiguous.

This bittersweet comedy, written by Jack Heifner, ran for five years in New York and became one of the longest-running plays in off-Broadway history.

Arts Manager Josh Selzer directs the production, which features senior Colleen Alford, and sophomores Brooke Hain and Courtney Zimmerman.

“In addition to offering three great roles for women, the play says so much about our society,” Selzer says. “It looks at the ways we’re brought up and conditioned from early childhood to want certain things and to continue certain patterns, and what happens when we start to mature and realize that maybe we don’t really want those things or fit those patterns.”
