The SC theatre department is bringing their own modern-day twist to the classic play “Dr. Faustus.” It will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 21-23 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 24.

Many elements of the original “Dr. Faustus” will remain the same, but the cast will portray today’s government officials as the main characters.

Dr. Faustus, played by Scarlet Green, musical theater sophomore, portrays President Donald Trump. Jack Warring, musical theater junior, portrays Mephistopheles, or Vice President Mike Pence. Lizzy Santana, theater performance freshman, plays Lucifer, or Vladimir Putin. The final cast member is Emily Robinson, musical theater freshman, who will play Cornelius, or Kellyanne Conway.
