Wig and Buckle Theater Company Presents Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House"
04.03.14 |
Lebanon Valley College's Wig and Buckle Theater Company will present "A Doll's House," Henrik Ibsen's landmark play. The show is the fourth and final full-scale production in the theater company's "Skeletons in the Closet" season.

"A Doll's House" chronicles the tale of seemingly typical housewife Nora (played by sophomore Megan Doris) as she discovers the intricacies of her relationship with her husband-and reveals that things are not always as they appear. Wildly controversial upon its 1879 premiere in Denmark, Ibsen's play is considered a major feminist work.

Director Dee Bogert '14 has extensive theatrical experience throughout her time with Wig and Buckle as an actress and the company's set coordinator of two years, and connected with Ibsen's work. "Ibsen's genius is his ability to create complex characters that highlight the messiness of life," she explained. "This was a challenge to bring to the stage, but in the end was ultimately worth it."

Wig and Buckle's production has a cast of nearly all freshmen and sophomores, creating a unique learning environment for all involved. "Rehearsals for this show have been a great learning experience for the cast," said stage manager Keifer Kemmerly '14, also Wig and Buckle's president. "The student-actors are learning the process, and it has been a pleasure to see them learning and growing as performers."

Freshmen Indiana Bolger is featured as Torvald, Nora's husband. "[The show] has come together beautifully over the last few weeks," he said. "'A Doll's House' is an amazing experience."

"I think the entire cast grew from this experience by seeing life isn't black and white, and good things don't have to be happy," Bogert added.

The cast includes Grace Bailey '17, Indiana Bolger '17, Megan Doris '16, Rachel Hogan '17, Shannon Kane '16, Blace Newkirk '16, and Dylan Tobias '16.

Evening performances are Friday and Sunday, April 4 and 6 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, April 5 at 2 p.m.; Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 11, 12, and 13 at 8 p.m. All shows are in Leedy Theater of Mund College Center. Tickets are free to LVC students, $15 for adults; $10 for non-LVC students, alumni, and faculty; $5 for children 10 and under; and $5 for seniors 60 and over.

Wig and Buckle was founded in 1935 and is student directed and entirely student-run. The company has recently announced its 2014-15 season, "Beneath the Surface," which will include the musical "Curtains," Arthur Miller classic "All My Sons" directed by Matt Hollenberg '15, and French comedy "Tartuffe" directed by Lacey Eriksen '16.
