Goshen College to hold Winter One Acts

Posted on Feb. 12, 2014 at 5:25 p.m.

GOSHEN — The Goshen College Theatre Department presents Winter One Acts, a theater event consisting of two productions, "Stay Tuned" and "Do Not Go Gentle" Feb. 14-16.

"Stay Tuned" was written by 1999 graduate Peter Eash-Scott and illuminates the incessant bombardment of external voices in our daily lives and their effects on relationships.

The show features junior Brett Conrad, senior Karsten Hess, freshman Nick Peebles, freshman Lea Ramer and sophomore Adrienne Schmucker. Grace Swartzendruber, performance venue production manager at Goshen College, directs the play.

Angie Troyer directs Susan Zeder's "Do Not Go Gentle" as her senior recital performance. In this play, 84-year-old Lillian Boedecker Barron discovers, after her death, that she cannot move on until rifts in family relationships are somehow mended. The play is based upon the Dylan Thomas poem "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Dark Night." The production features senior Lauren Treiber, freshman Ally Medellin, junior Paul Zehr, junior Brett Conrad and sophomore Adrienne Schmucker.

Tickets for the show are $3 and are available through the welcome center by calling 535-7566, online at or at the Umble Center Box Office one hour before the show.

Winter One Acts will be at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday in Goshen College's Umble Center.
