University Theatre examines the charms – both good and bad – of small-town life when it presents “Morning’s at Seven” April 15-17 and 23-25 in Manion Theater at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
“Morning’s at Seven” focuses on Aaronette, Ida and Esther Gibbs, three aging sisters living in a small Midwestern town in 1938. Their lives are thrown into a tizzy when Myrtle Brown takes matters into her own hands to wring a marriage proposal from Ida’s son, Homer.
The plot explores how families provide security as well as suffocate, and offer ease along with irritation.
The play is directed by Julie Ahasay, UWS alumna and veteran of University Theatre productions. The cast includes university alumni Jack Starr, Kathy Laakso and Scott Smith along with community members Cathy Berggren, Patricia Lewis, Lawrence Bernado, Priscilla Manisto and Keith Shelbourn. Current UWS student Meaghan O’Toole-Gott rounds out the acting ensemble.
