APPRENTICE PLAYERS TO OFFER FIVE PERFORMANCES OF "SUBURBIA"

3/15/2007

Shows Slated for Orange Hall Theater April 6, 7, 13, 14 and 15

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – The Apprentice Players at SUNY Orange will bring to life the tale of fascination, jealousy and anger that five disaffected young adults endure when they get a visit from a rock-star friend who “made it” out of their small middle America town in the play “SubUrbia,” set for a five-show run at the College’s Orange Hall Theater April 6-7 and 13-15.

SUNY Orange alumnus George G. Gallo will direct the Apprentice Players as they perform the play written by Eric Bogosian. Set in the parking lot of a local convenience store, the five principal characters are wasting away their lives, harassing the store owners and reliving their high school glory days when their old friend Pony arrives in a long, black stretch limousine. Pony is the semi-famous lead singer of a rock band that has a song on the charts, and his arrival unleashes a wide range of emotions from the five friends still “stuck” in their small town.

Audience members are advised that this play is not for children and contains strong language and themes that some may find objectionable.

Showtimes are 8 p.m. for all performances except the April 15 show, which will begin at 3 p.m. Ticket prices are: $10, general admission; $8, senior citizens, faculty and alumni; $4, students; and free for active duty military personnel. For reservations, call (845) 341-4789. For more information, contact the Arts and Communication Department at (845) 341-4790.

Orange Hall Theater, located in Orange Hall, is universally accessible. General parking is available in the College parking lot at the intersection of Wawayanda and Grandview avenues.
