NOC Presents Breaking and Entering
     Breaking and Entering, the final production of the Northern Oklahoma College theatre season, opens Thursday, April 9 for a four-day run at the Kinzer Performing Arts Center on the Tonkawa campus.
     Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday with a 2 p.m. curtain Sunday, April 12. Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for students at the box office, which opens at 7 p.m.
     This screwball romantic comedy, highlighted by mistaken identities, hilarious plot twists and witty repartee, is billed as “a play to steal your heart with a generous mix of larceny, love and laughter.”
     Ryan Brown of Ponca City stars as a charming burglar and con artist named Warren G. Sandler (maybe; he seems unsure of his middle initial). Olivia White of Kingston shares top billing as a fast-talking, armed judo expert named Crawford (maybe; if you believe the explanation for her unusual name).
     Kevin Fiorina of Blackwell plays middle-aged Mr. Lawton, a slob with a predilection for heart-splattered boxer shorts and an addiction to television, while Marissa Hess of Claremore rounds out the cast as Mary Sue Ralston, a middle-aged spinster with a secret passion for Mr. Lawton.
     How Warren and Crawford manage to find true love while enabling Mr. Lawton and Miss Ralston to do the same makes for an entertaining evening of felonious fun at the theatre.
     Breaking and Entering, a former winner in the Kentucky Contemporary Theater’s original play contest, was written by Vin Morreale, Jr., and made into a movie in 2004. John Michael Warburton directs the NOC Fine Arts Division’s production by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Ill.
