That ChampionshipSeason

Written by Jason Miller

The Studio Theatre, Wayne State University

This show was a challenge in that 4 of the 5 characters are nearly identical in age, are all from the same town, and are all wearing suits, the fifth matches this in all but age. How to take a bunch of 18-20 year olds and make them look like theyíre all pushing 40 or better? Lots of putting makeup on boys. This was a surprisingly tricky process, as the small theatre made it, not only possible, but quite common for the actors to be within two feet of the front row. There was also much agony over suit selection.
