FSU’s Department of Theatre and Dance Presents “The Wolves,” a Dramatic Comedy About Grit, High Stakes and the Power of the Pack

The Department of Theatre and Dance at Frostburg State University will close out its 2021-2022 production season with “The Wolves” Friday, April 29, Saturday, April 30, and Thursday, May 5, through Saturday, May 7, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on April 30 at 2 p.m. Directed by faculty member Nicole Mattis, performances will take place in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center.

High knees! Butt kicks! Grapevine! Move, move, move! As a high school girls indoor soccer team warms up in the safety of their stretch circle, tiny battles cross the turf with slicing precision. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2017 and winner of the 2015 Relentless Award for Playwriting, “The Wolves” zooms in on a group of warriors coming of age in contemporary American society, upending preconceived ideas about girlhood and growing up. Hailed by The New York Times as “the scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence,” “The Wolves” is a high-energy dramatic comedy that flits from scene to scene with grit, high stakes and the power of the pack.

The cast features Alyssa Bahner (No. 11), Zoie Collins (No. 25), Amaya Hatcher (No. 13), Madilyn McManaway (No. 46), Ashlee Casey (No. 2), Grace LaCount (No. 7), Elena Echeandia (No. 8), Dominique Little (No. 00), Alex Manocchio (No. 14) and Erica Breighner (Soccer Mom).

In addition to Mattis, the creative team includes Francis Sharkey (scenic design), Whitney O’Haver (costume design), Brendon McCabe (lighting design), George Georgerson (sound design), Rebekah Reimer (props design), Ryann Elise Cooper (stage manager), Kristin Hall (assistant stage manager) and Mina Del Borrello (soccer consultant).

“The Wolves” is recommended for ages 14 and older.
