Theatre Professor to Perform in Community Production of 'Jabberwock'

Jay Breckenridge, professor of theatre arts at Penn State Greater Allegheny will be appearing as Doc Marlowe, a pitch man for a miracle medicine, in the upcoming Heritage Players' (Bethel Park Community Theatre) production of "Jabberwock. " As tech director, Breckenridge also designed and built the set.

Directed by Lance Eric Skapura, the play, for which the full title is "Improbabilities lived and imagined by James Thurber in the fictional city of Columbus, Ohio, made into a play," by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, is high-octane, door-slamming family fun. It features the wacky, slightly dysfunctional Thurber family in the years leading up to World War I.

The show runs for two weekends -- Feb. 15 to 17 and 22 to 24 -- at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays at the Bethel Park Community Center, 5151 Park Ave. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors.
