Little Company to perform 'Senora Tortuga'

Jan. 26, 2011 —     Morehead State University’s theatre students will present the bilingual tale of “Senora Tortuga” on Thursday and Friday, Jan. 27-28 at 7 p.m. in the Lucille Caudill Little Theatre located in Breckinridge Hall.

    The Little Company is celebrating its eighth season and every January offers a free performance before taking the show on tour to various schools in the state. The Little Company promotes arts and humanities within our schools and holds workshops for the older students after each performance that coincides with Kentucky’s Core Content standards.

    The shows will be directed by Denise Watkins, associate professor of theatre.

    “Senora Tortuga,” written by Roxanne Schroeder-Arce, tells the story of a son and mother who don’t quite see eye-to-eye. The son has his head in the clouds while the mother is grounded in reality. With the help of a mysterious woman, they find a middle ground. This play is suitable for all ages.

    Performing cast of the Jan. 27 show will be Dana Barthel, James Coleman, Katlyn Comley, Sarah Humble, Evan Nischan, Emily Shaw and Alex Stigers.

    The Jan. 28 show will be performed by Katrinna Alexandros, Corie Caudill, Delilah Gamble, Alan Pleiman, Bria Stacy, Catherine Walker and Jessica Waters.

    Admission is free and reservations are not necessary. Special seating requests are available by calling the box office at 783-2170 or e-mail
