Ponoka theatre student to star in Rosebud production

Judite Vold will play ‘Laura’ in ‘ The Glass Menagerie’

Judite Vold, a third year Rosebud School of the Arts student hailing from Ponoka, will play a starring role as “Laura” in the school’s upcoming spring production of The Glass Menagerie.

The Glass Menagerie, a play written by Tennessee Williams, will be presented by the artists-in-training at school, located in the small town of Rosebud, Alta.

The play portrays the life of Amanda Wingfield and her two children.

“The plot of the show begins with Amanda Wingfield, a faded remnant of Southern gentility who now lives in a cramped St. Louis apartment with her aimless eldest child and her debilitatingly shy daughter, Laura,” stated a press release.

”When a gentleman caller arrives for dinner, the Wingfield family is flooded with hope. But will this mysterious visitor change things for the better?”

Vold said she’s thrilled to be working on The Glass Menagerie because of the opportunities for her to learn and grow as an actress.

She also played a starring role in Rosebud’s previous student show, Say Hello, Wave Goodbye, in February.

The Glass Menagerie opens Friday, April 14 and runs for three weekends until the end of the month.

Rosebud Theatre and School of the Arts is celebrating their 50th year in 2023.

All of the plays and musicals featured this season are centered around the theme of finding home.

Currently running at the Rosebud Opera House until May 20 is The Trip to Bountiful, a story of finding home again.

Following this is the beloved family musical, The Sound of Music, running all summer from June 2 until Sept. 2.
