University of Maine students, faculty, staff and alumni are taking part in the Orono Community Theatre’s production of “Proof,” a psychological drama, that will be performed in the Cyrus Pavilion Theatre on campus.
UMaine alumna and Orono Community Theatre Director Sandy Cyrus will direct the production. “Proof” will be the first play Cyrus has directed in the theater since 1994, when the building was named after her late husband and former UMaine theatre professor Edgar Allan “Al” Cyrus.
The cast is composed of Dick Brucher, a professor in and chair of the UMaine English Department; Jennifer Hancock, a current UMaine student; and Hailey and Joel Crabtree, UMaine alumni.
The production team includes stage manager Kaleigh Knights, a UMaine student; scenic designer Deb Puhl, a UMaine alumna; costume designer Hannah Cyrus; and assistant stage manager Andrea Littlefield, communications and program coordinator of Maine EPSCoR.
“Proof” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16–18, 24 and 25; and at 2 p.m. Jan. 19 and 26. Tickets are $12, $6 for students with a valid MaineCard, and are sold in advance at Orono Pharmacy and at the door 30 minutes before each show.
