EPCC Theater Ensemble put together a play for the community title God's Favorite.
The play already had its first two presentations, but more presentations will follow on Nov. 7 and 8 at 8 p.m. and November 2 and 9 at 2:30 p.m. at the Forum Theater located at the EPCC Transmountain campus.
God’s Favorite was written by Neil Simon and it’s loosely based off of the biblical book of Job.
The play is being directed by Matthew Robert Smith, a theater instructor at EPCC.
“It was a lot of fun and it all came together,” Smith said.
“I got to work with students whom it was their first time and they did a great job.”
The story follows a rich man named Joe Benjamin who lives on Long Island and is forced to face trials testing his faith in God.
He is confronted with temptations and afflictions all leading to his downfall.
“I like to do positive things that have a positive message,” said Ana Miramontes, a theater major student at EPCC who played Mady.
The cast consisted of students in the EPCC theater program and from other majors.
“The hardest part was probably having to slip into a childish like mentality for my character,” said Taylor McDaniel, a nursing major who played Sarah Benjamin.
“This was my first play and it was a challenge having to figure out how to play a drunk son, though it was a lot of fun” said Alexander Guzman, a biology major who played David Benjamin.
Tickets can be bought at the box office in front of the forum theater in the Transmountain campus.
Tickets are $7 for EPCC students, faculty, staff and seniors and $10 for non-EPCC students that are military.
General admission is $15. Cash or check only will be accepted.
