Marlys Cervantes to appear in Ponca Playhouse production

March 4, 2021

Marlys Cervantes, Chair of Cowley College’s Humanities and Communication Department, is currently rehearing for her role in The Ponca Playhouse production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which is based on the novel by Mark Haddon. The production will open March 12 and run through March 21.

The production was adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Sam Stuart.

Cervantes’ character is a counselor/educator named Siobhan.

“I love the book,” Cervantes said. “The screenplay is from a British novel of the same name, and the main character is an autistic high school boy.”

Audience members will be expected to be in masks and will be seated distanced from other groups in the audience for safety. To purchase tickets, contact The Ponca Playhouse at 580-765-5360.
