Emporia State Summer Theatre closes its 62nd
season with The Stinky Cheese Man and Other
Fairly Stupid Tales. Though the characters may
be familiar, this charming family comedy by
John Glore retells favorite storybook fables
with uproariously derailed makeovers.

Actors Tyler Lang (Wichita), Justin Tinker
(Henderson, NV), Fran Opheim (Olathe), Zulema
Renteria (Emporia), Harriel Mack (Newton),
Nathan Dale Short (Paola), and Torin Horvik
(Fargo, ND) tell the stories of Chicken Little,
The Gingerbread Man, and everything in between.
Fun music and witty narration accompany the
likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard
animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky
cheese to go around.

The Stinky Cheese Man is under the direction of
Dan Matisa. Assisting with the production are
technical director Chris Lohkamp, scenic
designer Eric Luchen, costume designer Kelsey
Patterson, sound designer Andrew McCutcheon
(Gardner), production stage manager Courtney
Romero (Derby), and assistant stage manager
Andrew Ralston (Topeka).

The Stinky Cheese Man runs July 27th —29th at
7:30 pm, with a special matinee performance on
July 30th at 2:00 pm. All performances will be
in the Karl C. Bruder Theatre located at 1301
Market Street. For tickets to this production,
visit the Memorial Union Ticket Office or call
620-341-6378. For media inquiries and more
