Two More Shows

A completely entertaining "Youth Invasion" of The Two Gentlemen of Verona opened last night at the Swan Theatre.

Amid charming performances throughout the ensemble, there were several standouts:

The Two Gents, Rue Mumgaard as the trusting Valentine and Danny Carraher as the torn Proteus;

The Two Clowns, Hunter Maude as the quick-witted Speed and Prestyn Hartman as a delightfully delusional Launce;

The Two Ladies, Emma Gruhl as Silvia and Noemi Berkowitz as Julia, both of whom make us care about what happens even as we laugh at the play's silliness.

Congratulations to everyone, especially our Youth Director, Tom Crew, and Stage Manager, Emma Williams. This Flatwater Education program was made possible by a grant from the Nebraska Humanities Council.

The show continues tonight and tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday June 22-23, at the Swan Theatre at Wyuka, 3600 "O" Street in Lincoln. Show time is 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 General, $8 Students and Seniors. Call 473-2897 for reservations.
