St. Lawrence News


Assistant Professor of Performance and Communication Arts Ann Marie Halstead has a role in Pendragon Theatre's production of the play Welcome Home, Jenny Sutter, which opens July 22 and runs through the end of August. The professional company is based in Saranac Lake, New York.

Welcome Home, Jenny Sutter is by Julie Marie Myatt; the production is directed by Anita Montgomery. The play premiered in February at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival; that production will travel to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., in July. Pendragon is only the second theatre to be granted the rights for a production of this highly acclaimed new play. The story: "When U.S. Marine Jenny Sutter returns from Iraq, she lays down her rifle but isn't ready to pick up her children. Buying some time, Jenny takes a one-way trip to nowhere -- a desert community where misfit residents gently nurture her wounded spirit and nudge her back to her own humanity."

Halstead has the role of Cheryl, a therapist.

Pendragon Theatre's co-founders, Bob Pettee and Susan Neal, were awarded the North Country Citation by St. Lawrence at Commencement in 2007.
