Arkansas State University-Beebe Theater Department will perform The
Princess, the Farmboy and the Ogre on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 2:30 p.m.
and 7 p.m. at the Owen Center Auditorium. A special performance for area schools will be
held on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium. The play is

The Princess, the
Farmboy and the Ogre was written by Timothy
Bordelon, an ASU-Beebe student from Des Arc, who also performs in the play as
Leo the Ogre. It is a truly heartwarming
story of friendship and courage. Cast
members directed, rehearsed, constructed scenery, and designed costumes in
preparation of the performance.
In addition to Bordelon,
cast members include Jessica Meadows from Cabot, as Rachel; Cullen Dunn from Mayflower as Noah; Emily
Humphrey from Beebe as Larkin; Nasasha Smith from Beebe as Carla; Desirae
Kaufman from El Paso as Mary; Charles Halloway from Jacksonville as Chris; Lily
Kong from Beebe as Helen; Chris Bartlett from St. John, Indiana as Bruce;
Christina Monday from Jacksonville as Fay; Loren Marks from Hazen as Ann;
Andrew Urassa from Arusha, Tanzania as King John; Amanda Morea from Beebe as
Queen Lucy; and Joseph Blackwell from Vilonia as the Captain of the Guard.
Seating for the event is unreserved and on a first-come basis. The
theater will open 30 minutes prior to curtain call. There will be no
admission charged for the show; however, donations to the Angel Tree project
will be accepted.
