Feeney Players present 'Alive and Kicking' this weekend

The Feeney Players, Saint Joseph's College's student-led acting group, performs “Alive and Kicking” November 15 through 17 at the college's Standish campus.

Directed by Saint Joseph's alumnus John Daggett '08 of Harrison, “Alive and Kicking” is a comedic drama about a family who struggles to cope with the changes life presents to them. The play follows Gloria Nix’s struggle with empty nest syndrome and the premonitions she has about herself and her family.

“This is a can’t-miss performance,” says cast member and Saint Joseph’s senior Shannon Chisholm. “The writing is not only funny and emotional, but it’s also very relatable. Families will see themselves in the characters and leave feeling connected and uplifted by this experience.”

“Alive and Kicking” is the work of award-winning playwright Jules Tasca (b. 1938). Tasca is the author of more than 100 published plays which have been produced in numerous national theaters — from the Mark Taper Forum to the Bucks County Playhouse — as well as abroad. He has also written for radio and television.

The Feeney Players will perform in the Viola George Auditorium in Harold Alfond Hall at 7 p.m. November 15 and 16, and at 1 p.m. on November 17. Tickets are $10 at the door for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for children under the age of 18.
