ALBANY-- The Darton Players will present three performances of "The Great Baloney Hoax," a play for the whole family, in the Darton Theatre April 15-17 at 8 pm. Admission is free to all.

The play, written and directed by Jack Carroll, director of the Darton College Theatre Program, is particularly recommended for young audiences. It tells the story of a toy company that produces a 'fad' toy based on a unique gimmick.

About the play, Carroll said, "So what if it's about corporate greed, selling out, compromising one's integrity, chasing after a quick buck, and dealing with a one-size-fits-all world view? Have you talked to your kids lately?!"

Twenty-one actors, including students in Darton¹s Production Workshop class, will appear in the play. Students in Darton¹s Stagecraft class are in charge of production.

For further information, contact Dr. Jack Carroll at 430-6858 or carrollj@darton.edu
