[September 22, 2009]  The theater department of Lincoln Christian University will present "The Curious Savage," by John Patrick, on Oct. 8, 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Earl C Hargrove Chapel building.

The plot of the play is that Mrs. Savage has been left $10 million by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, in spite of the efforts of her grown-up stepchildren to get their hands on it. The play is loaded with plenty of laughs, and the last scene, a farewell party, is a delightful fantasy where each "guest" in the sanatorium realizes at last some hopeless dream for something he was never able to realize. The dominant mood is high comedy, and the audience is left with a feeling that the neglected virtues of kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in a world that seems motivated at times only by greed and dishonesty.

The cast includes Lincolnites Brandon Davis as Hannibal and Jessica Sutton as Mrs. Paddy. Jaisi Bishop portrays Florence and Allison Campbell is Fairy May. Logan Butts is Jeffrey, Marshall Nelson plays Titus, and Andy Hjortshoj is Samuel. Lily Belle is played by Charity Stratford, Kelsey Foster is Miss Wilhelmina, and Dr. Emmett is played by Spenser Carrel. The role of Mrs. Savage is played by Becky Campbell.

Tickets are $7 for students through college and $9 for adults and may be obtained by calling Mr. Books Book Store, 217-732-3168, ext. 2224.
