Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters opens CCM Drama’s Studio Series this evening (Thursday, Nov. 4). Sisters Olga (Catherine Prevett), Irina (Caroline Shannon) and Masha (Bennett Bradley) are refined and cultured young women who were raised in urban Moscow but have been living in a small, colorless Russian provincial town for eleven years. With their father dead, their hopes lie heavily in their anticipated return to Moscow, while the painful monotony of day-to-day living exacts its toll. The production, directed by Professor Diane Kvapil, runs Thursday through Saturday in the Cohen Family Studio Theatre.

Drama Studio Series Sponsor: Neil Artman and Margaret Straub

In theatre, timing is everything. That couldn’t be more true for the cast and crew of CCM’s Evita, as they finalize all the details that go into a Mainstage musical production. Later this weekend, a crew of about 60 will load in the large sets, including the installment of a black floor comprised of about 96 four-by-eight-foot wood planks. Then there is the large movie screen that flies in that must be timed perfectly to align with the projection, along with sound effects, lighting, and other special effects that must seamlessly fit into the production.
