The final theatre production in the University of Wyoming’s 2008 Snowy Range Summer Theatre and Dance Festival, “Rounding Third” runs July 8-12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center studio theatre in Laramie. Tickets cost $10 for the public, $8 for senior citizens and $5 for students. For tickets call (307) 766-6666 or go online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts.
Directed by UW Professor Leigh Selting, the play follows Don and Michael, two mismatched coaches and fathers who are stuck together leading a team for the duration of the Little League season.
“This is a perfect summer show. Extremely funny and topical, it speaks to anyone who has ever had a child involved in competition, or played themselves,” says Selting.
This production of “Rounding Third” features Brandon Taylor and Michael Legg, both members of the Actors’ Equity Association, the labor union representing American actors and stage managers in the professional theatre.
Taylor is a 2005 UW alumnus whose recent credits include: “Tango” (UCSD/La Jolla Playhouse) and “The Deception” (La Jolla Playhouse).
Legg is the director of the Apprentice/Intern Company at the prestigious Actors Theatre of Louisville whose recent credits include “Our Town” (Triad Stage), the film “February One,” (official selection for the 2003 Telluride IndieFest) and appearances on television’s “Law & Order: SVU.”
