The Chattanooga State Repertory Theatre will present Anton Chekhov's "Three Sisters" over the next two weekends.

The story, set in Russia in 1900, centers on the once-privileged Prozorov family. The three sisters -- Olga, Masha and Irina -- are dissatisfied with their lives and dream of moving from their provincial town to Moscow, where they believe all will be happy. As their dreams decay, they realize meaning will come not in Moscow but in themselves.

Chekhov, according to director Sherry Landrum, is the second most produced classical writer next to Shakespeare.

"Part of the Professional Actor Training Program curriculum is studying the four major plays of Chekhov and performing scenes from those works," she says.

The cast is composed of students from nine graduating classes, plus a current student, faculty members and six guest artists.

The PATF graduates are Bridgett Bryant, John Thomas Cecil, Gioia Fazzini, Tommy Goddard, Apryl Hughes, Jessie Knowles, Roman Penney, Joel Rievley and Ryne Williams. Chava Hoffman is a current PATP student. Cast members Bob Hobgood and Rex Knowles are faculty/staff members at Chatt State. Guest artists are London Goddard, Stephanie Goddard, Becki Jordan, Doug May, Layton Williams and Taylor Williams.

Maggie Bradshaw, a PATP graduate, is the assistant director and stage manager.
