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 Building.

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.

The cast includes: Keith Carl, a senior music education major from New Richmond, Wis., plays Anthony J. Lefcourt; Courtney Nelson, a sophomore social work major from Ellsworth, Wis., performs Claudia; and Alexis Delve, a sophomore psychology major from River Falls, Wis., plays Natalie. Greg Lund, a sophomore music education major from Woodville, Wis., acts as Michael; Joe Burger, a sophomore theatre arts major from Menomonie, Wis., plays Sam Farber; and Kyle Thomas, a junior music education major from Hinckley, Minn., is Robert Lattimore.

The production’s stage manager is Amy Bengston, a sophomore social work major from Pine City, Minn., and the assistant director is Emily Kotajarvi, a senior theatre arts major from Portage, Wis. The play is directed by O'Brien.
