Olen Cox (left), Danielle Jimenez (center, back) and Callison Vaughan (right, front) rehearse a scene from USAO’s upcoming production of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. The set design places the audience within inches of the stage. The play opens at 7:30 p.m. on March 9 in the Davis Hall Little Theater.

Katie Davis, director of the drama program at the University of Science and Arts, does not think that should keep anyone from coming to see the spring production of Uncle Vanya.
