SAINT AUGUSTINE – Flagler College’s Theatre Arts students will perform one of Anton Chekhov’s classic and beloved plays, “Three Sisters,” from March 6 to 9 at 7:30 p.m. and March 10 at 2 p.m. in the Lewis Auditorium at 14 Granada St.
The play will serve as a capstone project for two graduating seniors: Megan Williams, who plays Olga Prosorov, and Corlina Kiernan, who designed the set. The production includes a local actor, Andrew Nance, as the old doctor, as well as a recent Flagler graduate, Brian Matthews who plays the Colonel Vershinin.
Associate Professor of theatre arts and the show’s Director Andrea McCook said, “This play is about the dire consequences that occur when we fail to accept the changes that our lives bring.”
“Three Sisters” takes place in a small provincial town in Russia at the dawn of the 20thcentury. It centers on a family of three sisters and their brother, longing to return home to Moscow. When a new commanding army officer moves into their dull town, things become more interesting.
“By the end of the play they realize that the lives they dreamed of and hoped for will never come to be and they must accept the reality of the lives they have,” said McCook.
“Three Sisters” is presented by special arrangement with ICM Partners. Tickets are $15 general admission, available online at tickets.flagler.edu. Tickets may also be purchased directly at the box office beginning March 4, Monday through Friday, 12-5 p.m., and one hour prior to curtain. Flagler faculty, staff, their immediate family, and Flagler students, may obtain one free ticket directly from the box office. Non-Flagler students may purchase a discounted $5 ticket with their identification.
