The Bowling Green State University Department of Theatre and Film will present “The Harvest” Oct. 20-29 in the Eva Marie Saint Theatre at the Wolfe Center for the Arts.
Written by Samuel D. Hunter, “The Harvest” centers around a group of young Idahoans who are embarking on a mission trip to the Middle East. The pressures of preparing for the trip forces each of the characters to grapple with fears, doubts, identity and their place in a church that promises safety and a meaningful life, but exacts a price for those as it imposes a worldview that is governed by immutable rights and wrongs.
Directed by Sara Lipinski Chambers, “The Harvest” features costume design by Margaret McCubbin, scenic design by Steve Boone, sound design by Joey Young, lighting design by Marcus Sherrell, painting and props by Kelly Mangan and technical direction by Danny Mangan. BGSU students Donovan Callahan, Katie Hicks, Cameron Willis and Cam Bruder also work on the production as assistant director and stage managers, respectively.
The cast includes Braden Evans as Josh and Dannie Ellis as his best friend, Tom; Madison Ellis as Josh’s estranged sister, Michaela; Maddie Hatton as the missionary group’s leader, Ada; Hurricane Harrington and Logan May, newlyweds Denise and Marcus; and Jarod Mariani plays Pastor Chuck.
Performances take place Oct. 20-22 and 27-29 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 22-23 and 29 at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at BGSU.edu/The-Arts/Tickets. Advanced tickets are $5 for students, $10 for seniors and $15 for adults. Tickets purchased on the day of performance are $10 for students and $20 for both seniors and adults.
