The Oswegoland Park District’s Limelight Theatre Company presents an adaptation of George Cukor's classic film The Women. The unique thing about this show is that it is presented by an all-female cast. It is the first part of a pair of shows exploring the worlds occupied by gender exclusivity (the boys get their own chance on March 16th with Fail-Safe). The Women is a biting satire about privilege, set in the world of the upper class. The women of this high society story change husbands like ordinary folks change shirts; they're bored, and they've got money to spare! The characters are entitled, mean, gossipy, and they backstab and betray one another endlessly, all while maintaining their friendships and underlying responsibility to one another. Our Radio Division’s original interpretation of this story will be brought to life via an ensemble of “radio actors” who vocally portray multiple characters, as well as a crack team of foley artists who use every day items to create live sound effects. All of the artists involved in this production will be female to celebrate and showcase our female talent.
The Women will be performed one night only on Saturday, February 23rd at 7pm at The Little White School Museum, located at 72 Polk Street in downtown Oswego. Tickets are $7 for Adults and $5 for Students/Seniors and are available at the door. For more information please call Cori at 630.554.4433 or visit www.limelighttheatrecompany.org.
