Theatre Young Harris to Present Romantic Drama “The Shape of Things”

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Theatre Young Harris will present “The Shape of Things” Wednesday-Thursday, Sept. 21-22, at 7 p.m. in Dobbs Theatre located in the Goolsby Center on the Young Harris College campus. This play is free and open to the public.

Written by Neil LaBute, a young student drifts into an ever-changing relationship with an art major while his best friends’ engagement crumbles, which unleashes a drama that peels back the skin of two modern-day relationships. Due to strong language and adult themes, this play is recommended for mature audiences.

This production is directed by senior religious studies and theatre major Brandon Helton, of Dahlonega, Ga., and features junior theatre major Nick Oberheu, of Loganville, Ga., as Adam, senior music major Sarah Stogsdill, of Shalimar, Fla., as Evelyn, senior theatre major Macaulay Vanhoose, of Woodstock, Ga., as Phillip, and senior music education major Emily Nix, of Winder, Ga., as Jenny.

“The Shape of Things” is part of Theatre Young Harris’ Studio Series which features productions showcasing student direction and provides an invaluable educational experience that focuses on the fundamentals of the production process.

Theatre Young Harris is a performing arts organization of the College. Each season, the theatre company presents a full lineup of notable productions, including full-length musicals, innovative dramas, classic plays, children’s shows and more. Auditions are open to YHC students, faculty and staff as well as the community.
