CCC's Harlequin Productions Presents 'VS: Eight Scenes of Relationships'

DATE: 10-16-2002

Does it have to be men VS. women in life's battle for a steady relationship? Are men really from Mars and women from Venus? Can we ever really learn to communicate with the opposite sex? Harlequin Productions of Cayuga Community College presents, on October 25 and 26 and then again on November 1 and 2, a world premiere evening of eight 10-minute scenes by two different playwrights that explore just those themes. You'll join couples in various stages of their relationships; from first meetings to running into an old High School flame to married for years. Elliot Weiner and Mike Folie have written quick takes on life and love that will have the audience howling with laughter and then pausing to reflect on their own experiences. As an extra special bonus, we'll offer an easy-to-follow method that you can use to make your own relationship successful for years to come.

Directed by Bob Frame, the student ensemble includes Aaron Capozzi, Rob Clark, Erik Emerson, Mike Engler, Jason Manning, Adam Smith, Jessie Brown, Melissa Ely, Jo-Ellen Gilfus, Valerie Snyder, and Calvelene Weller, with Melissa Gaffney working with Frame as Stage Manager. The Technical Design staff bring years of experience to this production and include Virginia Fennessy (sets), Brad McLean (lights), Allison Day (costumes), and Sandy Reilly-LaLonde (Props). The quality of Harlequin Productions work has been recognized by the Theatre Association of New York State and the American College Theatre Festival through the awarding of Merit Awards for performances, direction and technical. Past productions have also received invitations to travel to State and Regional Festivals for competitions. And this production also promises to be an unforgettable evening of quality Theatre. As Tom Woods, Citizen Reviewer wrote, "Harlequin offers an unheard of bargain; strong, thought-provoking theatre for an extremely reasonable price."

Tickets are only $1 for students with ID and $4 for general admission and will be available at the door. Curtain time for all performances will be at 8:00 p.m. in the main college theatre. Due to strong language this play is not recommended for children.
