Olivet College theatre program to present “How I Learned to Drive”
Feb 02, 2006

OLIVET, Mich. The Olivet College theatre program is presenting How I Learned to Drive Feb. 23-25 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. in the Oaks Theatre in downtown Olivet. The play, which is free and open to the public, is recommended for mature audiences due to language and subject matter.

Written by Paula Vogel, the Pulitzer Prize winning play is about family, growing up, finding independence and establishing ones own identity. Lil Bit, the protagonist, is taken advantage of by her Uncle Peck at an early age, and the play traces her difficult journey through adolescence into adulthood with both humor and pathos.

The cast includes Jeremy Adams, a freshman from Novi; Andy Hipkiss, a teacher certification student from Mulliken; Jennifer Lambarth, a sophomore from Saline; Mariah Mickelwait, a junior from Middleville; and Dayna Vickery, a senior from Port Huron. Emma Henson, a freshman from Shelby Township; and Chanzo Tambuzi, a senior from Mesa, Ariz., are serving as understudies for the performance.

How I Learned to Drive is directed by Arthur Williams, director of theatre at the college. Jenny Shaw, a senior from Hastings, is serving as assistant director and stage manager.
