Theatre Arts students perform Pulitzer Prize-winning contemporary play "Clybourne Park"

Clybourne Park performance at McDaniel College

McDaniel College Theatre Arts students perform in “Clybourne Park,” winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play. Performances are Wednesday, March 6–Saturday, March 9, at 7:30 p.m., in the Dorothy Elderdice Studio Theatre (Understage) in WMC Alumni Hall.

This comedy-drama, written by Bruce Norris, was inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin in the Sun.” “Clybourne Park” portrays fictional events set before and after the Hansberry play, and is loosely based on historical events that took place in the city of Chicago. Tad Janes, artistic director of the Maryland Ensemble Theatre in Frederick, Md., directs the production.

Students in the cast are seniors Kiah Hyman of Ellicott City, Md., and Sam Shoemaker of Frederick, Md., juniors JP Kim of Frederick, Md., and Kevin Tyson Jr. of Baltimore, and sophomores Zacharias Callis of Damascus, Md., Karly Congero Lavallette, N.J., Matthew Foley of Fair Lawn, N.J., and Lauren McKenna of Sykesville, Md. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students, seniors (over 60), active military members and veterans, as well as those with a McDaniel College ID. For tickets, call 410-857-2448.
