HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 14, 2009 ? The High Point University Theatre delighted audiences with performances of “Fuddy Meers” during its two-weekend run in the Old Student Center’s Empty Space Theatre.
The production, written by David Lindsay-Abaire, is an American play that tells the story of an amnesiac, Claire, who awakens each morning as a blank slate on which her husband and teenage son must imprint the facts of her life.
Jay Putnam, assistant professor of theatre, directed the production; scenery and lights were designed by Matthew Emerson, assistant professor of theatre; and costumes were designed by Ami Shupe, associate professor of theatre.
The comedy featured Nikki Lawson, senior, as “Claire”; Nathan Ruffin, junior, as “Richard”; Rankin Willard, sophomore, as “Kenny”; Luke Mullinax, junior, as “Limping Man”; Cody Russell, junior, as “Millet”; Eliza Walmsley, senior, as “Gertie”; and LeAnna Rothwell, junior, as “Heidi.” The production stage manager was Camara McLaughlin, senior.
