JJC Fine Arts Department presents David Auburn’s “Proof”

The community is invited to several showings of the Joliet Junior College Fine Arts Department’s production of “Proof,” directed by JJC Fine Arts Assistant Professor Tammy Perkins on April 20-22 and April 26-29 at 7:30 p.m.; and April 22-23, 29 at 2 p.m. in the Joliet Junior College Black Box Theatre in K-Building, on the Main Campus at 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet.

“Proof”, a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning drama by David Auburn, is a dramatic exploration of a brilliant young woman haunted by both the mathematical genius of her father and the mental illness she fears she may have inherited from him. It is also a story about human relationships, suggesting that developing trust and love can be as difficult, and just as uncertain, as establishing the truth of a mathematical proof.

The cast includes: Paul Zavala and Jake Busse of Joliet; Taylor O’Brien of New Lenox; and Elizabeth Cronin of Custer Park. Ashley Lopez of Oswego is the stage manager; and Gage Frederiksen of New Lenox and Eric Marshall of Plainfield are assistant stage managers.

Ticket prices are $8 for the general public, $5 for senior citizens and $3 for students with additional discounts available for JJC faculty and staff. To purchase tickets, call the box office at (815) 280-2200.
