The Central Theatre Ensemble (CTE) opens the season with Richard Dresser’s comedy, Rounding Third, about two hapless Little League baseball coaches.
They couldn’t be more different—Don is a blue-collar, beer-drinking good ol’ boy who likes to play hardball. His assistant, Michael, is a young, uptight professional who wants every kid on the team to feel successful and get a prize. The play follows this unlikely duo through a baseball season as they fight, fail, and flail in their attempts to coach, collaborate, and win the game.
Rounding Third is CTE’s Faculty Showcase for the 2010-2011 season. Director Elise Forier is a playwright, as well as an assistant professor of theatre arts. The two-character play features Michael J. Smith, as Don, and Keith Edie, as Michael. Smith is a professor of theatre arts, who teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in acting voice, directing, and dialects. Edie is a professional stage and film actor, who teaches all levels of acting at Central.
Rounding Third will be performed on October 8 and 9, at 7:30 p.m., and October 10, at 2 p.m., at the Milo Smith Tower Theatre. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors and students, and $5 for students with ID. Tickets may be purchased online at www.cwu.edu/theatre/tickets/ or by phone ext. 1774.
