Student Theater Group Presents Spring Production
APRIL 14, 2006--Comedy and mystery come to the University of Wisconsin-River
Falls as the student theater group, Masquers, presents "The Butler
Did It" by Walter and Peter Marks at 7:30 p.m. on April 27 –
29 and May 4 – 6 in the Davis Theatre of the Kleinpell Fine Arts
The play is a story about the last attempt of Anthony Lefcourt to re-establish
his career as a director and author through a well-calculated play that
goes madly awry.
"The Butler Did It is a play on the classic 'who done it,'"
says Iris O'Brien, a senior history major from Rhinelander, Wis., and
director of the production. "It is a play within a play that is filled
with interesting characters and a dizzying storyline.
"The Butler Did It" is the latest in a long line of shows produced
each year by Masquers. The play is completely student organized, from
the props and costumes, to the lights and set. O'Brien says, "the
production serves as a way for the students of River Falls to see a show
where all acting, design, technical and artistic aspects are done and
accomplished by fellow students."
Tickets are $7 for adults and $4 for students and seniors. For more information
call the box office at 715-425-3114 or 1-800-228-5423.
