In “Driving Lesson,” Colby McGahey plays Chris, Sam Mikeworth is the Dad, Jenny Schrum is the Mom, and Elizabeth Boyd is Scottie. Schrum also plays Sylvia in “Delayed” along with Keeley Johnson as Whitney and Ricky Shelton as Charles.
Cox also plays the role of Beth in “Strange Addictions.” She’s joined by Gil T. Wilson as Earl, John Sutfin as Mike, and Vicky Becker as Sue. Moore also plays a host in “Phone-Free Zone” along with Ryan Corn as the waiter. Brennan Seth Tracy plays Chris in “Free Advice” along with Chris Forde as Joe, Allison Nichols as Olivia, Shawn Mitchell as Bert, and Summer Agan as Jewel.

Students in LTC’s Acting 1 class will perform four skits as a part of “Culture in a Cornfield.” In “Pop Quiz,” Katie Elder plays Mrs. Moore, Xavier Brown is Ethan, Brynna Hale is Lauren, TJ Baker is Justin, Macy Sutfin is Alexis, and Malika Khadka is Luis.

One of the differences with “Culture in a Cornfield” is that all of the skits will be recorded in advance. People that want to be able to watch the final production will be able to purchase an online ticket that will give them an access code to watch the show. “Additionally, we intend to offer in-person tickets for watch parties at the Theater if COVID guidelines allow for that,” says Gallion. Dates for when the show is available for viewing online will be announced at a later date.
