Centenary received the game-winning goal off the foot of senior Kortney Causey at the 16-minute mark when the ball rolled slowly past the goal line to put the Ladies up 1-0.

poster for Pangaea

Marjorie Lyons Playhouse's 2010-11 season opened Thursday, Sept. 23 with Pangaea, a play written by written by Centenary student Erik Champney.

Besides writing the play, Champney also performs along with fellow cast members Rachel Havird, Chelsea David, Andrew wood and Barry James Acosta. Ryan Williams, drama program director at C.E. Byrd High School, is directing.

According to Williams, the story is about the lives of five people and how one of those people infiltrates himself in all of their lives and begins to manipulate their lives and relationships. "Because of this one person, the rest of them start manipulating each other and him," he said. "It really is an interesting concept."

Shows will take place tonight (9/24) and Saturday (9/25) at 8pm with a matinee on Sunday (9/26) beginning at 2pm Admission is $10 for adults; $5 for senior citizens, non-Centenary students and military. Tickets are free for Centenary students, faculty and staff.
