Casper’s John Jorgensen Takes On “Death Of A Salesman”

Matt Young, Casper College

The president of Casper’s Hilltop National Bank takes the stage to portray the tragic figure of Willy Loman in “Death of a Salesman” currently running at Casper College. Actor and Casper Businessman, John Jorgensen says the role may be the hardest thing he’s ever done.

“With the exception of actually surviving army boot camp as an out of shape college graduate many years ago, surviving that is maybe harder. At least physically and maybe even emotionally. This is probably one of the hardest things ever in my life.”

Jorgensen has five more performances to complete this week. That means if you haven’t already seen it you have until Sunday’s matinee to catch his performance in “Death of a Salesman” supported by a very strong cast. The Arthur Miller drama takes a look at the darker side of the American dream as it unravels for the character of Willy Loman. Jorgensen says, he believes there’s a lot of Loman in each of us.

“There are things about our personas that probably never really happen except in our own minds. Probably not to the degree of Willy, where he kind of invented his whole life in his head, but I think it is, in my limited exposure to American Theatre, I think ” Death of Salesman” is the classic of the last century.”

“Death of a Salesman”, continues at Casper College, Krampert Theatre, this Wednesday through Saturday evening with a final matinee on Sunday.
