Published: November 16 2015



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

sponsored by Delta Psi Omega, the honorary theater fraternity, and donations will

benefit the ASU-Beebe Angel Tree project.




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.
