WAUKESHA, WIS.— Carroll University students will perform “The Shape of Things” by Neil LaBute on Friday, Oct. 19, 2012, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 20, at 2 and 7 p.m. The performances will be in the Studio Theatre of Otteson Theatre, 238 N. East Ave., Waukesha. This event is free and open to the public, but seating is very limited.
“The Shape of Things” is about a cunning art student who brings to life an unforgettable story of love, deception, and the ultimate give and take of relationships. While visiting a museum, Adam meets art student Evelyn, and is instantly smitten. As their relationship develops, she gradually encourages Adam to change in major ways that surprise his older friends. As Evelyn's antics become darker and darker, her influence begins to twist Adam and his friends apart. LaBute’s modern take on the biblical seduction of Adam by Eve pushes the notion of “how far a person will go for love” to the extreme.
Evelyn will be played by freshman Carly Sauer, Adam by freshman Sam Burns, Jenny by sophomore Alexis Furseth, and Phil by junior Montana Mariscal. The production is directed by senior Trisha Himmler, stage managed by senior Danny Slattery, set direction is by sophomore Taylor Burzynski, lights and projections by junior Chris Meissner, and sound by junior Justin Schultz.
