Catawba College First-Year and Transfer Students Present "Nocturne" Oct. 28-31
October 22, 2010
Adam Rapp's "Nocturne" will be presented by Catawba College first-year and transfer students Oct. 28-31 in the Florence Busby Corriher Theatre on campus. This Blue Masque production runs at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 28-30, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31.
In this student-directed performance, students new to Catawba explore a haunting story of tragedy, grief and what happens when you pick yourself up and re-enter the world. Rapp's unique tale is, according to the Associated Press, considered "a startling, unnerving work of art that fiercely pushes the boundaries of theatre."

Cast members include Aaron Alderman of Durham; Allison Andrews of Sherrills Ford; TyNia Brandon of Charlotte; Christian Barringer of China Grove; Chelsea Boulton of Monroe; Bailey Buckner of Johns Island, S.C.; Jordan Clifton of Garner; Jura Davis of Charlotte; Brianna Gallagher of Indian Trail; Ashley Hood of China Grove; Ashley Jackson of University Place, Wash.; Ryan Kelly of High Point; Jacquelyn Loy of Burlington; Alex McCall of Statesville; Leah Powers of Thomson, Ga.; and Chadeon Proctor of Indian Trail.
