(BEAVER FALLS, Pa.) – The Geneva College Theater Program will begin their 2020 spring season with Where there’s a Will, there’s a Way!, featuring various well-known scenes from some of William Shakespeare’s most memorable plays. Where there’s a Will, there’s a Way! is directed by Geneva College English professor, Dr. David Kuhns, and will be performed at 7:30 p.m., on February 20-22 and 27-29, with matinees at 2 p.m., on February 22 and 29.

This Geneva College Theater Program production features many returning faces, including Caleb Vander Plaats as Mercutio, Amelia Adams as Hermia, and Thomas Fiorini as Antonio, along with many new faces including Lydia Tack as Puck, Elyn Snyder as Olivia, and Kevin Donaldson as Macbeth. In addition, Dr. David Kuhns will appear as Theseus, Geneva College Theater Program director Mindy Williams as Portia, and Geneva College Theater Program marketing director Benjamin Kennedy as Shylock.

From romantic love, partisan hatred, obsessive revenge, or a lust for power, Shakespeare’s dramatic analyses of human motivation are unparalleled and provide a glimpse at what we are capable of when our human “Will” reaches a degree of desire that escapes rational management and carries those who indulge that desire beyond their conscious intentions.

“Arguably, no dramatist has been more adept at the study of human passion – in all of its manifestations – than William Shakespeare,” says Director, Dr. David Kuhns. “Where there’s a Will, there’s a Way! presents some of the ways in which Shakespeare most incisively probes the human heart and its complex web of desires. Where this plays out comically – in the scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, and As You Like It – the result is merely temporary confusion and embarrassment. But in The Merchant of Venice, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth, the consequence of desire’s overreach is tragic self-destruction. Come and join us for a memorable evening of some of Shakespeare’s most iconic scenes.”

All performances are open to those outside the Geneva community. Admission is $7 for adults, and $5 for students and children under thirteen. Tickets may be reserved by calling the box office at 724-847-5099.
