The King College Performing Visual Arts Department's Trousdale Theatre Guild, a student
theatrical organization, will present A.R. Gurney's Sylvia on Friday, March 2, and
Saturday, March 3. The fundraiser production will be performed as a dinner theatre
in Maclellan Hall, the College's dining hall, located on the King College campus in
Bristol, Tenn. Funds raised will go to the Trousdale Theatre Guild for equipment purchases.
The funds will also be made available for the students to attend conferences, interviews,
We are excited to offer a dinner theatre production to the community, said Elizabeth
Dollar, chair of the Performing Visual Arts department and director of the Theatre
program at King College. This student-led production is a wonderful way to showcase
the immense talent we have in the theatre program at King.
Sylvia is a romantic comedy about an older couple who have recently moved to New York
City. The couple's children are grown and out of the house, and they are feeling the
empty nest. Greg meets a dog (played by a human) while out in the park and decides
to adopt her. When he brings the dog home, Kate disapproves and wants her gone, but
Greg begs Kate to keep the dog for a while. When the couple visits a psychiatrist,
it only brings more tension between the two of them. As Greg and Kate struggle with
what to do about Sylvia, their marriage is put to the test.
The comedic work's director is King senior Casey Worley. The production features fellow
senior Chip Hanks as Greg; junior Samantha Salyers as Sylvia; junior Glory Allison
as a tri-character playing Leslie, Tim, and Phyllis; and freshman Stephanie Haun as
Kate. The production is designed by Chip Hanks, junior Levi Tignor, and junior De-Anda
Hatfield. Freshman Desiree Jordan is the stage manager.
Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 2, and Saturday, March 3.
Tickets prices are as follows: $20 for one; $30 for two; $75 for a table of six. To
reserve tickets, please contact Elizabeth Dollar at 423.652.4839 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets will also be available on sale in the Tornado Alley Bookshop located on the
