    Written by Jack Heifner, “Vanities” centers on the lives and friendship of three “aggressively vivacious” cheerleaders starting from high school in 1963, continuing through college as sorority sisters in 1968, and ending with the dissolution of their friendship in 1974 as their interests and lives diverge and their relationship is strained and ambiguous.

    The production features UMN Crookston students: Jessica Willits, an undeclared major from Crookston, Minn., Bailey Bradford, a junior majoring in English from Mentor, Minn., and Janessa Millar, a sophomore majoring in English from Blaine, Minn. The production is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
