LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - This spring, Lock Haven University is bringing something new to the stage with the creation of the Spotlight on Diversity program. Stage readings of A Raisin in the Sun, The Piano Lesson, The Colored Museum, and Nearest Relative will be performed in the John Sloan Fine Arts Auditorium. Additionally, LHU's Lyrically Speaking- the spoken poetry and word club- will be among the performers.Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and
work in Pennsylvania.
The purpose of the program is to promote social, cultural, and racial diversity within the theatre circuit of Lock Haven University, the city of Lock Haven and its surrounding communities. The program is designed to make theatre more accessible to university students, members of the community, and anyone who has even a slight interest in the performing arts. This program will give LHU students, relatively new to theatre, a chance to be exposed to the production process. Spotlight on Diversity hopes to bring attention to new talent in the areas of script writing, technical production work, and performance.
Auditions for A Raisin in the Sun, The Piano Lesson, and the Colored Museum will be in early February. No head shots, resumes, or prepared monologues are required. All are welcome.
The first performance is scheduled for Friday, February 26 in the Sloan Auditorium, located on North Fairview Street. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Refreshments will be provided during intermission. Admission will be free.
