Lake Erie College and Rabbit Run Theater to present “Mass Appeal”


Lake Erie College and Rabbit Run Community Arts Association (RRCAA) have partnered this year to present "The Studio Series: Class & Contemporary,” a theatrical effort funded in part by a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional funding includes a grant from the Lake County Visitors Bureau’s Arts & Culture Fund.

"Mass Appeal,” the first of four productions in this partnered performance season, will be performed October 2, 3, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. and October 4 and 11 at 2:00 p.m. in the C.K. Rickel Theatre in Royce Hall for the Fine and Performing Arts on the Lake Erie College campus. Actors include Tom Hill as Father Tim Farley and senior LEC Bachelor of Fine Arts student Connor McCarthy as Mark Dolson.

Written by Bill C. Davis and directed by Brint Learned, this dramatic comedy focuses on the conflict that occurs when a beloved Catholic priest who deftly avoids controversial issues encounters a passionate young seminarian who is determined to make such issues part of his preaching.

Originally produced on Broadway in 1981, it is interesting to note that some 35 years later the issues presented in the play are still a relevant part of our conversation about religion today.

Tickets for general seating are $15 for adults and $13 for seniors. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance at Parking is free.
