"These Shining Lives" Radiates Onstage at UWG's Townsend Center

The University of West Georgia’s theatre department will perform These Shining Lives on Nov. 10 – Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 13-14 at 2:30 p.m. in the Townsend Center for the Performing Arts Richard L. Dangle Blackbox Theatre. There will be a community preview on Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. for $3.

These Shining Lives, a play by Melanie Marnich, is the radiant story of four workers at the Radium Dial Company in Chicago, Ill. during the roaring 20s, and their fight for justice and worker’s rights. Directed by UWG faculty member Dr. Amy Cuomo, These Shining Lives depicts the story of brave women and their underdog attempt to tackle corporate America.

The production features set design by Tommy Cox, and costumes designed by Alan Yeong. Students have also contributed to the set, with lighting design by Jamie Bray, media design by James Parker, and sound design by Michael Bryan.
