October 2014: HER OWN WAY

Greta, Glenys and Danny Stockwell
The first play ever produced by Humboldt State one hundred years ago is presented again, this time as a radio-style dramatization.

 Greta Stockwell plays the resolute heroine, while Danny Stockwell is the man she loves, and Calder Johnson is the ruthless businessman who comes between them in the Broadway hit, Her Own Way. 

 Other characters in the cast of 15 are portrayed by HSU Theatre, Film & Dance department faculty and staff, plus special guests (including young Glenys Stockwell.) 

 Scheduled for Homecoming Weekend, it is a celebration of theatre at HSU for alumni and past participants as well as today's HSU. 

 Her Own Way is performed on Friday October 3 at 7:30 p.m (with reception afterwards) and Saturday October 4 at 2 p.m. in the Van Duzer Theatre. Tickets are $5, students admitted free, from the HSU Ticket Office (826-3928) or at the door.
