The Seton Theatre Company presents Stage Door, written by Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman, on December 1, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in the Mahler Center for the Performing Arts at Elizabeth Seton High School, under the direction of Elliott Moffit, his first production at Seton. In addition to being a professional actor, director, singer and author, Moffit is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Bowie State University, where he has produced and directed performances for almost twenty years. He holds a Master of Arts in Theatre degree from New York University.
The play concerns a group of young girls who have come to New York to study acting and find jobs. The scene is Mrs. Orcutt's (Raina Jackson, '20) boarding house, where the hopes and ambitions of sixteen young women are revealed in scenes of entertaining comedy. Contrasted with this are the cases of the girl without talent and the elderly actress whose days are over. The central plot has to do with courageous Terry Randall (Logan Jennings, '19), who fights against discouragement to a position in the theater where we are sure she will conquer. One of her fellow aspirants gives up in despair, one gets married, and one goes into pictures, but Terry, with the help of idealistic David Kingsley (Timothy Adams, DeMatha Catholic High School, '20), sticks to her guns. Color and contrast are offered by Mattie, the maid (Larisa Injinju, '20); Frances, her colleague (Nina Otero, '21); a few young men callers; a movie magnate; and young Keith Burgess (Josh Buffaloe, Bowie High School, '20 ), the playwright who "goes Hollywood."
