He’s also an orphan, and is being raised by his Auntie Eileen and Auntie Kate on a small island off the coast of western Ireland. Bullying and belittlement are the way of life for everyone on the island, though Billy probably catches the worst of it. With the arrival of an American filmmaker, everybody sees it as their chance to make it big and leave the island, but nobody wants it more than Billy Claven,” said GSC Theatre Director and Professor of Communications Dennis Wemm.

Cast members for the performance include: Jeremiah Underwood from Summersville (Nicholas County), West Virginia as Billy Claven; Brittany Ferguson from Glenville (Gilmer County), West Virginia as Auntie Eileen; Mary Lewis from Harpers Ferry (Jefferson County), West Virginia as Auntie Kate; Eric Jones from Weston (Lewis County), West Virginia as Johnnypateenmike O’Dougal; Neysa Brown from Alum Bridge (Lewis County), West Virginia as Mammy; Brittany Robinson from Mabie (Randolph County), West Virginia as Slippy Helen McCormick; Cody Mullens from Calvin (Nicholas County), West Virginia as Bartley McCormick; Ryan Helmick from Grafton (Taylor County), West Virginia as Babbybobby Bennett; and Travis ‘Tyler’ Hammack from Spencer (Roane County), West Virginia as Dr. McSharry.

‘The Cripple of Inishmaan’ is intended for mature audiences and parents are strongly cautioned that the play is not recommended for children. There are scenes of violence and strong language, though most of it consists of swearing in an Irish dialect. For more information, contact Wemm at Dennis.Wemm@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6323.

The Marshall University School of Music and Theatre welcomed guest artists Teresa Dody, Lloyd Bone and John Mark Walkup Thursday for “Eclectic Passions: Songs of Life and Love,” an euphonium and vocal recital.

Bone, assistant professor of music at Glenville State College, said he was grateful for the opportunity to perform at the recital.

“Glenville State is a size school that it’s so different from like Marshall,” Bone said. “At a lot of the smaller schools, you really wear a lot of hats, and it’s not to say the faculty here aren’t busy in their own means, it’s just a different type of busy. In larger institutions, you get to go out and perform and smaller schools don’t.”

Dody, assistant professor of music at Glenville State College, said because they are busy, they do not get the chance to perform.

“We are really glad to take the opportunity to perform,” Dody said. “Because we are so busy as professors, that this is what you study, this is what you do for years and years and years and then life happens and you don’t get that chance.”

Dody said she wrote some of the pieces performed in the recital due to the lack of euphonium and voice music.

The duo performed songs together and they each performed solos.

John Mark Walkup, professor of music at New River Community and Technical College, accompanied Bone and Dody.

A Q & A was scheduled following the concert.
