The faculty and students of the theater program in performing and fine arts would like to invite all faculty and staff to be their guests in the 2015-2016 academic year. All University ID cards can now serve as season passes for two to all four of main stage UP theater productions.
This year’s fall term season begins on October 7 to 11 with Sarah Ruhl’s The Clean House, directed by Andrew Golla. While in search of the funniest joke in the world, Matilde the housekeeper (who hates to clean) hatches a deal with her employer’s sister (who loves to clean) for an arrangement too good to last in this poignant comedy that considers what’s really important in life.
The second show of the semester is Sarah Treem’s Mirror Mirror, from Nov. 18 to 22. In this dark comedy based on the Snow White tale, ten teens love, lose, and betray each other during one autumnal weekend in a kingdom far, far away.
Spring offerings include a rare treat of American Expressionism, The Adding Machine, a comic yet searing look at technology and its effects on human relationships, by Elmer Rice, running February 24 to 28. The main stage season closes with Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, April 8 to 10 and 13 to 15, directed by Andrew Golla.
All evening performances are at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Because of the success of theater program productions, advanced reservations are recommended through the Hunt Center box office at 7287, or in person at the lobby ticket window, which will be open one week before every production. Simply present a UP ID card, and receive your tickets at no charge.
