SF’s Fine Arts and Entertainment Technology presents the fall play, Audience.
Student actors in Theatre Santa Fe will perform Michael Frayn’s farcical play “Audience” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 13-15, in the Jackson N. Sasser Fine Arts Hall at the Northwest Campus of Santa Fe College (SF), 3000 NW 83rd Street, Gainesville.
Tickets are $15 for adults; $9 for seniors, students, military service members and children 12 and under; and free for SF students, faculty and staff with college ID cards. Tickets are available from the Fine Arts Hall box office at 352-395-4181 or online from Showpass.
Frayn, who is a playwright, novelist and translator, is best known for his plays “Noises Off,” “Copenhagen” and “Democracy.” His work has been compared to that of Anton Chekhov for its focus on humorous family situations and its insights into society.
“This one-act play is an amusing satire about a play’s director and an audience watching a play, where some of the director’s choices go well and others don’t,” explained SF Theatre Professor Terry Klenk. “It’s performed in the style of a British comedy and has been described as the story of ‘a playwright in agony over crinkling candy wrappers, talking out loud, and an inattention to her play.’”
The cast of “Audience” includes 10 student actors, including two theatre scholarship students as well as students from SF’s performing arts, general education and high school dual enrollment programs.
Audience” is sponsored by the Santa Fe College Fine Arts and Entertainment Technology Department.
