Holy Cross Theatre Department to Perform Postmodern Comedy ‘Cloud 9’

October 27th, 2014 by 

The department of theatre at the College of the Holy Cross will present their fall production “Cloud 9,” written by Charyl Churchill and directed by Scott Malia, assistant professor of theatre. The performances will be held in Fenwick Theatre, located on the second floor of O’Kane Hall, on Nov. 6-8 and 13-15 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $7 for members of the Holy Cross community and $10 for the general public and can be reserved by calling the box office at 508-793-2496.

“Cloud 9” is a postmodern comedy about identity and imperialism. It follows a family from the Victorian period in British-occupied Africa to the wild and liberated London of the 1970s. Along the way, the play bends rules of time, gender and race as the characters struggle to figure out who they are.

“We have such an amazing and talented cast. This show is pretty out there, but I promise that we’ll all have you laughing the whole time!” says senior Maureen (Mo) O’Meara ’15.

Fellow cast mate Rose Weiss ’18 adds, “As a freshman, I could not imagine a better welcome to Holy Cross than being cast in “Cloud 9.” The theatre department’s support and creativity is unbound, and I am so happy to get to work with such a talented and hysterically funny cast. I can’t wait to share “Cloud 9” with the Holy Cross community.”

The music for “Cloud 9” is by Eric Culver, director of chamber orchestra and concert manager, costume design by Kurt Hultgren, and set and lighting design by B.J. Powell, visiting assistant professor.

The cast features Brian Ott ’16, Rose Weiss ’18, Pat O’Konis ’16, Nicole Williams ’15, Nick Jorgensen ’16, Maureen O’Meara ’15, Sean Mitchell ’17, Chris Little ’17. The ensemble includes Mary Baker ’18, Ali Christovich ’18, Keon Fernandes ’15, Nick Guarracino ’18, Leo Hernandez ’16, Aubrie Kimble ’15, and Emma O’Leary ’18.
