TLU Dramatic Media presents a “Solid Gold” production
February 17, 2011
Texas Lutheran University (TLU) Dramatic Media department presents “The Solid Gold Cadillac” by George S. Kaufman and Howard Teichmann, March 4 through 6 in Jackson Auditorium. From the 1950’s to today, Kaufman and Teichmann’s piece gives a voice to those investing in big business and reminds corporations who really holds the power.
This charming period comedy set in 1950’s New York and Washington follows the story of Laura Partridge (portrayed by Berenice Guzman), a very small stockholder of 10 shares in General Products Corporation, a very large manufacturer of everything from nail files to automobiles. While attending her first stockholders meeting, she asks some tough questions of the board of directors—who bristle when asked to defend their exorbitant executive salaries. In an effort to silence her, the board hires her as the new Director of Stockholder Relations. Underestimating her influence proves costly, as she rocks the company through a farcical series of events. Ultimately, upon winning the trust of a former CEO (“Big Ed”), while securing the support of fellow shareholders, Ms. Partridge proves that Wall Street is nothing without Main Street.
This event is open to the public. General Admission tickets can be purchased in the TLU Bookstore (830-372-8140) for $10 for adults and $5 for non-TLU students and seniors; free admission with a TLU ID.
The production will run March 4 through 6 in Jackson Auditorium on the TLU campus. Evening performances begin at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, while matinee performances start at 2:30 p.m. on Friday and Sunday.
