Walking into the Center for Art and Theatre at Georgia Southern, the actors are dispersed in various areas, most with their noses buried in scripts, eyes closed and mouths moving with only whispers of words. All the actors have a calm panic about them as it’s the first day of act two without a book in hand for playwright David Lindsay-Abaire’s comic look at serious situations “Wonder of the World.” The play is entering its final days of rehearsal as it opens Wednesday and runs through Friday at the Center for Art and Theatre on the GSU campus with performances at 7:30 each evening.
