The Actor’s Nightmare to be Performed at Walsh University March 28-30 and April 3-5, 2014

UPublish story by Walsh University

Walsh University’s drama troupe the Genesius Players will perform Christopher Durang’s The Actor’s Nightmare in the Betzler Auditorium in the Betzler Social and Behavior Sciences Center on the Walsh campus March 28 at 8:00 p.m., 29 at 8:00 p.m., 30 at 2:30 p.m. and April 3 at 8:00 p.m., 4 at 8:00 p.m., and 5 at 8:00 p.m.

This one-act play centers around an unassuming accountant named George Spelvin, who wanders onto an empty stage before a scheduled performance. Mistaken for the star of the show's understudy, George is recruited for the role. Soon, dressed as Hamlet "sort-of", George finds himself ad-libbing his way through an unidentified play that seems to transform itself into hilariously cracked versions of Private Lives, Hamlet and Endgame. His dismay grows when he realizes that the next scene will be from A Man for all Seasons, the execution scene to be exact!

Making his Genesius Players directorial debut is Walsh University Director of Game Day Operations, Mark Heffernan.

The Genesius Players was formed in the fall of 1977 and is named after St. Genesius, the patron saint of actors and an actor himself, who was beheaded when he refused to worship pagan gods in the 3rd century A.D.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for children under 12, and admission is free for Walsh University students with ID. Free parking is available directly adjacent to the Betzler Social and Behavior Sciences Center. For more information contact Mark Heffernan at, or call 330 244 4961.
