SPRING 2011 MAINSTAGE- The Wakefield Cycle
March 30- April 4, The University of Dallas Drama Department will present the Wakefield Cycle in a massive outdoor production at the base of its iconic bell tower.
Originating in the mid-fifteenth century, The Wakefield Cycle was used as a way of celebrating the Feast of Corpus Christi. These plays would take place outside on temporary stages with performers drawn from various town guilds – nearly everyone participated. This collection of raucous, moving and sometimes irreverent religious mystery plays depicts the salvation of mankind beginning with the creation of the universe and ending with the last judgment. In our production, led by Stefan Novinski, a cast of 30 performers, large theatrical puppets and live music will bring to life the stories of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, and the entire passion of Christ.
The cast includes Justin Blan, Matt Wisnoski, Nick Catanese, Tim Maher, Skyler Patton, Matt Pierick, Alex Treviño, Brian Vallone, Elaine Stenson, Monica Arbery, Joe Hrbacek, Vallery Bergez, Allie Cohill, Dylan Key, Thomas Sorensen, Blake Ballard, Tommy Riordon, Edward Wambsganss, Melissa Farris, Gus Braga-Henebry, Billy Amorella, Harrison Denn, Erin Kleiber, Roger Porres, Matthew Quinn, Josh Spencer, Amanda Werley, Jonny Wilder, and Jesse Beagan. It is directed by Stefan Novinski. The assistant to the director is Phil Cerroni. The production stage manager is Jessica Fowler and the assistant stage managers are Domenica Russo, Josh Hernandez and Dolores Hernandez. The period costumes are designed by Susan Cox and Tristan Decker designed the sets, lights and sound.
