Sophocles' "Oedipus The King,"probably the best known of all Greek tragedies, is to be presented on Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Little Theater on Lemon Street.
The play, whose basic theme is used in most all of the fine arts, will be performed by George L ' Stoughton's advanced acting class.
The leading role of Oedipus will be played by Bob Balderson; Jocasta, by Linda Clark and Ilona Clemens; Priest of Zeus, by Jeff Donaldson; and Creon, by David Mohr.
The play will be performed with only the use of Masks, (made by the Drama Department), robes, and Greek chorus.
This production is both an educational and academic experience all the way through for the students in both the Theater Arts Department and the English Department said Mr. Stoughton. "It is meant to benefit both."
All are invited to view the performance free of charge.
