Southern State Community College Theatre will present Jane Wagner’s “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe” on Nov. 4 and 5 (at 7:30 p.m.) and on Nov. 6 (at 3:30 p.m.) in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro.
Lily Tomlin’s one-woman tour-de-force (now played by 10 actresses) quickly introduces us to Trudy (Bronwyn Jones), who takes us, along with her two alien companions, on a discovery trip to find out what it means to be human and to impart her impressions on life. Trudy introduces us to many people: Agnus Angst (Callie Fryman), a 15-year-old punk performance artist; Chrissy (Sierra Bachman), a recently unemployed workout enthusiast; Lily (Jessica Davis), an actress currently performing a one-woman show; and many others (Rainee Angles, Paula Campagna, Celia Griffin, Madison Hatfield, Hannah Hengler, and Joshlin Lawson).
The production team includes Rainee Angles (director), Rainee Angles and Abraham Martin (production design), Laura Martin (costumes), Benjamin Gullett (public relations), and Paula Campagna and Melissa Griffith (stage managers). Fulfilling other crew positions are Tanner Allen, Brent Angles, Lex Angles, Charlotte Brown, Madeline Crabtree, Heather Cumbo, Katlyn Edenfield, D.J. Griffith, Harley Griffith, and Eric Silcott.
