'Look Homeward Angel'

   WOODINVILLE--The Woodinville High drama department will present Thomas Wolf's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Look Homeward Angel on Mar. 3, 4, 10, and 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the high school theater.

   Wolf's autobiographical play, which also won the New York Critics Award, revisits his passage from adolescence to manhood in the Deep South. Cultural and family influences impose strict limitations on Eugene (Darrin Mahlum), the son of an overly cautious and overbearing matriarch, as he struggles to attain his goals, to attend college, and marry his first "true love" Laura (Nicole Ryan). Laura is a tenant at Dixie Land, the boarding house run by Eugene's mother.

   Director Hjalmer Anderson and the high school drama club also presented Angel in 1987. In 1988, they took the production to Muncie, Indiana, for the International Thespian Festival.

   Tickets are available at the door, which opens at 7 p.m. for each performance. General admission is $8.50, students with ASB cards pay $7.50, while VIP seats (down in front) cost $10. Call 489-6751 for further information.
