The Department of Theater and Dance performs Doctor Faustus, Christopher Marlowe’s harrowing play about a brilliant scholar who sells his soul to the devil. The wildly irreverent production stars Wesley Guimarães ’19 in his senior thesis project in acting, and Maki Ybarra-Young ’20 as Mephistopheles. The show is directed by Professor Ron Bashford ’88, with set, props, costume, lighting and sound design provided by professional staff and guest artists Dedalus Wainwright, Barbara Neulinger, Sarah Woodham, Kathy Couch and Jake Meginsky. The Five College student cast also includes Samuel Hood, Max Nemhauser, Antigoni Papapostolou, Emma Ratshin, Lorelle Sang, Sebastian Son, Renz Toledo, Lindsay Turner and Jasper Wolf, stage managed by Julian Brown.
Seating is limited; reservations are strongly encouraged. For reservations, call (413) 542-2277.
