CROWN POINT | Crown Point Community Theatre, in conjunction with the Lake County Courthouse Foundation and through special arrangement with the Ayn Rand Institute, presents Ayn Rand’s suspenseful drama "Night of January 16" opening Thursday in the courtroom of the Old Lake County Courthouse on the downtown square.
There are four performances, at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and at 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $15 general admission, or $12 for seniors, students, and military personnel with valid ID.
Seating is limited, so reservations are strongly recommended. Group rates are available for 10 or more; call Crown Point Community Theatre.
Tickets are available online at CPCT.biz, or by calling (219) 805-4255. For $50, patrons receive five tickets to any CPCT performance(s) this season, with no expiration date.
A percentage of proceeds will go towards ongoing maintenance and restoration of the courthouse.
First produced in Hollywood in 1934, Rand's gripping courtroom drama is loosely based on the career and death of Ivan Kreuger, the Swedish "Match King" who made and lost a fortune. It leaves the answers up to the jury chosen each night from the audience, who select the ending of the play.
Produced and directed by Marion Kellum and assisted by Rob Kranc, the cast includes Scott Keehn, Chad Charles, Anne Nicholls, Christina Biancardi, Kristin Duncan, Brandon Hearne, Marc Ryser, Marion Kellum, Emily Duncan, Nikki Duncan, Gary Stengler, Carol Drasga, Roxann Poor, P.J. Culbertson, Deborah Deaton and Kranc.
