Pulitzer-winning drama hits OC stage


Special to The Sun

EDMOND — The Oklahoma Christian University theater department will perform the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “Doubt: A Parable”  Feb. 22-23 and March 1-2.

“Doubt” is set in 1964 in a Catholic school and church in the Bronx, N.Y. In this story, Sister Aloysius Beauvier must take matters into her own hands when she suspects a priest of abusing a student.

The cast includes OC senior Hannah Faye Foster as Sister Beauvier, freshman A.J. Leingang as Father Brendan Flynn, sophomore Sandra Peck as Sister James, and sophomore Tiffany Evans as Mrs. Mueller.

Directing the production is Phil Reagan, theater department chair and sponsor of Alpha Psi Omega, OC’s chapter of the National Theatre Honor Society. Reagan has had a role in directing, designing or producing every OC theater performance and musical since 1979. He has taught at Oklahoma Christian for 33 years.

This also is the last performance as costume director for professor emeritus Darrel Alexander. Alexander, who has been costuming productions at Oklahoma Christian since 1966, is retiring this year. He came to Oklahoma Christian in 1962 and retired from full-time teaching in 1996.

“Doubt” is suitable for audiences ages 12 and up. All four performances begin at 8 p.m. in Judd Theatre in OC’s Garvey Center.
