Danna Skipping plays "Granny" in the upcoming Pan American Summer Stock production of "Lost in Yonkers," which runs from June 27-30 at the Albert L. Jeffers Theatre.

Danna Skipping, an alumna of the masters program and presently an adjunct teacher in the theatre department, plays the lead (Grandma Kurnitz), while E. Cesar Trevino (Eddie), Tommy Green (Louie), Veronica L. Navarro (Bella) and Susibeth Villanueva (Gert) play characters of the middle generation.
