MSU Theatre Department presents "Man From Nebraska"
The title says it all about the play "Man From Nebraska" by Tracy Letts. This story follows Ken Carpenter, a man from Nebraska, played by MSU student Jake Flatten, an ordinary man, living an ordinary life in an ordinary place. His days are an everyday routine; he wakes up goes to work, goes to church and comes home to his family. This all changes when Ken wakes up in the middle of the night in fear and terror, because he no longer believes in God. Watch Kenís journey unfold as he learns about himself and faith.
Ken was once stationed in London and found himself wanting to take a vacation through his period of self-examination. After a retreat to London, Ken rediscovers who he is, where he wants to be in life and that he wants to be with his wife, Nancy, forever. Ken discovers faith everywhere and realizes that God does in fact answer his prayers.
Familiar faces and veterans to the MSU stage can be seen during this performance including Peg Morris playing Kenís wife Nancy; Jordan Crawford playing Reverend Todd; and Brett Olson as London sculptor, Harry Brown. "Man from Nebraska" is directed by Kevin Neuharth, MSU professor of communication arts.
Performances for "Man From Nebraska" are April 19- 21 at 7:30 p.m. and April 22 at 2 p.m. in Aleshire Theater. Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and students and free with MSU I.D.
