College success play open to campus at local theater

“An evocative, beautifully rendered portrait of ‘outsiders’ struggling to understand their own unique places in the world.”

This quote appears as a blurb from Penguin Publishing in the George Steinbeck novel, Of Mice and Men. With college being a place where you are supposed to be figuring out your position in the world, what better play could a group of college freshmen go to see than a dramatic presentation of “Of Mice and Men?”

The play is based around two young men trying to find where they fit in to the American dream.

Three college success classes, taught by Professor Hal Halbert, Dr. Seth Frechie and Dr. Charlie McCormick, are invited to see the play at the Montgomery County Cultural Center on the tentative date of Nov. 21.

Presented by The Iron Age Theatre and The Centre Theater, “Of Mice and Men” is being directed and designed by a Cabrini alum, John Doyle.

Doyle graduated from Cabrini with a degree in English/ Communications and is now in the spotlight just around the corner from his alma mater. He was also the director of residence life at Cabrini for a number of years.

While he is not working on productions, he teaches English and journalism at Norristown High School.

The three college success classes that are invited are primarily Eng/ Comm. majors. There are a limited number of tickets so if all of the tickets are not snagged early, any leftover will be made available to anyone interested in attending. There is no cost to the students.

Even if tickets sell out early, everyone from the Cabrini community is welcome to purchase tickets on their own.

According to McCormick, “The play is not only a great cultural experience, but it is a wonderful way to support alumni.”

For more information you can contact the Montgomery County Cultural Center at (610) 279-1013 or you can visit their website at iron/mm.html. To grab some leftovers, contact McCormick at x8467 or see him in the mansion in room two on the second floor. Sit back and enjoy the show.
