Commonweal Theatre Company presents Arcadia


Mon, Sep 1st, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. — The Commonweal Theatre Company presents the Tom Stoppard masterpiece, Arcadia, September 19 through November 9 with discounted tickets available for previews September 12 to September 18. Call the box office at 800-657-7025 or visit Commonweal Theatre online at www.commonwealtheatre.org for exact performance dates and times.

The New York Times described the play as a “rich, ravishing comedy; a play of wit, intellect, language, and emotion.” Set in one room but alternating between two time periods, Arcadia explores several themes including math, science, the order of things, romance and the nature of change. All of these themes work to illuminate relationships between the main characters, adding to their poignancy. “Some plays are very smart,” said cast member and Commonweal Resident Actor Scott Dixon, “And others have strong heart, but Arcadia is that rare gem which is both. This is one of those scripts on my list of ‘must act in’, and I’m very excited to be a part of it.”

The Commonweal is pleased to welcome the return of Leah Cooper to direct the production. Audiences will remember Cooper as the director of The Drawer Boy from the Commonweal 2012 Season. “Many people think Arcadia is this super intellectual play all about math and history,” stated Cooper, “But it’s really one of Stoppard’s most human plays full of heart and passion and nature. It’s beautiful, inspiring, funny, and totally accessible.”

Along with Dixon, the cast includes Commonweal Resident Artists Catherine Glynn, David Hennessey, Adrienne Sweeney, and Jeremy van Meter. Other cast members include Gary Danciu, Ana Hagedorn, Ryan Lee, Eric Lee, Brandt Roberts and members of the 2014 Commonweal Apprentice Class, Vincent Hannam and Anna Lee Murray.

Bailey Otto serves as production stage manager and, along with Production Manager Thomas White, leads the production team consisting of designers Kit Mayer (sets), Annie Cady (costumes), Dietr Poppen (lights), Stela Burdt (sound), and Megan Pence (props).

The Commonweal’s production of Arcadia is produced thanks to sponsorship from Ruskell Outdoor Services of Chatfield and Sargent’s Gardens of Rochester. Additional underwriting support from F&M Community Bank and the Target Corporation makes possible special weekday matinee performances for school groups, w .....
