The end is in sight and CEU’s production of Lunch Hour is nearly ready for opening. The set has been constructed in timing that makes even the Habitat for Humanity envious of the studious nature of our stage craft students. Headed by Grady McEvoy the tech class has been tirelessly working to complete a mock house complete with patio, bar and working fish tank.
“With the amount of freshman we’ve had this year it’s been a shock how fast we’ve finished this set. It just shows the maturity of the students and the consistency that they’ve shown,” said Dale Flink, Stage manager and assistant technical director.
The amount of time has even impressed the director of the show, Corey Ewan PhD. “It’s been a luxury to have the set built in this amount of time. It’s usually unheard of.” Even in the bigger institutes are their sets finished with a week to spare. “Now all of next week I can focus on the actors I don’t have to worry about the set and run around like a chicken with my head cut off.”
The show opens Thursday October 2 and plays through October 4.
