FSCC Theatre Department to Stage “Like Father”
Fort Scott, Kan.—The Fort Scott Community College Theatre Department will stage “Like Father,” at 7:30 pm Thursday, March 16 through Saturday, March 18.
“Like Father,” is a drama written by Chicago playwright Seth Kramer. It was performed at the American College Theatre Festival in Sioux Falls, S.D. FSCC Theatre will be the first company to produce the play. “In 1992, I saw a production of ‘Like Father,’ and it made an impression on me. I have wanted to direct this play for as long as I can remember,” said Lawrence Alford, FSCC Theatre Director. “In my undergraduate theatre program, I was fortunate enough to play the character, Mark. It is still one of my most memorable roles.”
“Like Father,” explores family dysfunction and life choices. “The play examines the age-old question: ‘Are we doomed to become our parents?’” said Alford. “Many times, we make choices in our lives because we have to—rather than because we want to—which can lead to feelings of being trapped in those choices.”
Performances will be held at Danny and Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center, 2108 South Horton, Fort Scott, Kan. General admission tickets may be purchased at the door on the day of the show—prices are $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and free for FSCC students. This show is recommended for mature audiences only, due to adult language and content. For more information, call Lawrence Alford at 620-223-2700, ext. 3056.
