Hartwick College To Present Enron

Hartwick College Theatre to Present “Enron”

November 8, 2012

Hartwick College Theatre Arts will soon stage British playwright Lucy Prebble's Enron. The production, including original music composed by Adam Cork, will be held nightly from November 14-17 at 8 PM in Slade Theatre of Yager Hall on the Hartwick College campus.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and senior citizens. WICKit cards are accepted.  For ticket reservations, call 607-431-4227 or visit the Production Manager's office next to the Lab Theatre on the Hartwick College campus.

Prebble's Enron is a modern drama based on true events. The play follows the rise and decline of Texas's Enron Energy Company through the 90's and early 2000's. The monstrous Enron came crashing down in late 2001 and proved to be one of the biggest cases of corporate corruption and fraud in America. Enron tells the tragedy of the Enron Corporation and the persons involved with a theatrical twist that will keep both the business savvy and the theatre lovers glued to their seats. 

Directed by Professor of Theatre Arts Marc E. Shaw, Enron will feature Thomas Horton '16 as Jeffry Skilling, Kevin Horan '14 as Andy Fastow, Alyssa Lundberg '16 as Claudia Roe, and Brandan Fielding '16 as Ken Lay.  Scenic Design is by Instructor in Technical Theatre Gary Burlew.
