Local theater students will take the stage for an Academic Theater production of “A Doll’s House,” April 28 through May 7 at Moraine Valley Community College. Tickets for the performances, which will be held at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays and at 3 p.m. on Sundays, are $12 for the general public and $10 for senior citizens and students.

The show, to be held in the John and Angeline Oremus Theater in the college’s Fine and Performing Arts Center, includes performances by Oak Lawn residents Daniel Bryne-Szafoni as Rank, Kevin McKirdie as Ivar, Declan McKirdie as Bobby, Delia McKirdie as Emmy, and Karina Polovinkina as Anna Maria.  Also, Leonardo Aranda, of Oak Forest, as Porter; Amanda Teplitz, of Orland Park, as Nora; Kevin Ross, of Hickory Hills, as Torvald; James Smith, of Alsip, as Krogstad; Shawna Schofield, of Morrison, as Linde; and Samantha Zickterman, of Chicago Ridge, as Helene.

“A Doll’s House” is a three-act play written in prose by Henrik Ibsen that is widely considered a landmark in the development of what soon became a highly prevalent genre of theater—realism. It strives to portray life accurately while shunning idealized visions, and manifests the writer’s concern for women’s rights and for human rights in general. This production will be directed by Dan Scott, Moraine Valley adjunct instructor of theater.

Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office in the Fine and Performing Arts Center located in Building F, or online.
