OJC Completes Production of Samul Beckett’s Endgame

 

The Otero Players recently held a production of Samuel Beckett’s Endgame. The production was held in OJC’s Ed Stafford Theatre. The play ran from April 13-15, with free admission. The Otero Players next production is Lee Blessing’s, A Walk in the Woods, and is scheduled for Friday Sept. 28, Saturday Sept. 29, and Sunday Sept. 30. On Friday and Saturday, the show will begin at 7 p.m., and on Sunday at 2 p.m. Admission will be free and open to all.

“With Beckett, you can pretty well expect that audience will be unfamiliar with his work and will show some confusion or have questions after the performance, but I think that despite the confusion, many audience members found humor and connection with the relationship between the characters.” Theater Director Cassidy Litle said.

Litle explained that while some of that connection is certainly a testament to Beckett's writing, it is also a testament to the dedication the performers Noah Doam, Broomfield Colo.; Sam Willett, Alamosa Colo.; Demian Ryder, La Junta; and Jodyanna Gallegos, Swink, put in to this production and their roles. According to those in the audience the cast had great timing and after the performance many audience members were seen complementing the production and the great quality of the performers.

“The play was great because it had so many different tones to give off depending on the crowd, actors and time of day. I can't wait to do another one but I know this one will always hold a special place in my heart.” Actor Sam Willett said.

The cast and director thanked everyone that came out and saw the show. Litle expressed that the audience could not have been better. “Finishing a production always gives me mixed emotions: relief, some sadness, some closure, but I think I speak for the entire cast and crew when I say that I am also incredibly grateful for a receptive community.” Litle stated.
