Written by Jane Martin, "Somebody/Nobody" takes direct aim at America's culture of celebrity. The high-energy play focuses around teen sensation Sheena Keener, darling of the press, as she hides from the paparazzi in the humble abode of a naive country bumpkin who idolizes her.
The production is directed by North Central professor of theater Deborah Harris.
The cast includes Taylor Calderone, a junior sociology and theater major from Mishawaka, Ind.; Megan O'Neill, a senior theater major from Naperville; Anthony James, a senior theater and psychology major from Quincy; Amanda Peck, a junior theater major from Woodridge; Adam Sehr, a sophomore political science major from Plainfield; and Zoe Roechner, a freshman musical theater major from Joliet.
North Central offers majors in theater or musical theater and a minor in dance. A full range of acting and dance classes is available, as well as opportunities to direct a full-length production.
Students of all majors can participate in musical and nonmusical performances, actor showcases and one-act plays and performances in the college's four theater venues. Full-time professors and active professionals who are artist-teachers serve as faculty.
