Thunder River stages `Ghosts’

Aspen Times Staff Report

The Thunder River Theatre Company will perform Henrik Ibsen’s “Ghosts,” in Nicholas Rudall’s powerful and contemporary translation, next month at the Carbondale Community School.

The production runs April 14-16 and 27-29.

The company welcomes Chris Fuller, playing the role of Ibsen’s “prodigal son” Oswald, and Haley Thompson as Regina in their first professional production. Both of these young actors have been active in local high school theater. Thompson is currently a senior at Basalt High School, and Fuller attended Basalt High School for two years and graduated from Colorado Rocky Mountain School.

Artistic director Lon Winston directs this stinging commentary on society, featuring Thunder River’s Valerie Haugen as Oswald’s mother, Mrs. Alving – a tragic heroine of Greek proportions, says Winston. Returning to the Thunder River stage is Richard Lyon of Aspen in the role of Pastor Manders. Tim Rafelson of Basalt returns in the role of Engstrand.

The company welcomes high school classes, and offers study guides and special group discounts for this production. Teachers interested in bringing their classes to the show should contact the company for further information at 963-0399.
