Watch for an exciting Snakeskin Jacket Announcement coming soon!
…In the meantime please join us in supporting The Black Hole Theatre:
Alumni representing more than 30 years of Black Hole history are coming together for this special fundraising production of Aristophanes’ bawdy anti-war comedy in celebration of a century of student theatre at the U of M and in support of the new Conklin Theatre.
Lysistrata will open Monday, September 28, in the Black Hole Theatre and run until Saturday, October 3, with performances nightly at 8:00 p.m., except on October 3, when the performance will begin at 8:30. Each performance will be followed by a reception offering a chance for alumni in the cast and audience to get together and talk about old times.
Tickets for this special fund-raising event are $50 each, with an income tax receipt available for a portion of the purchase price, and are available for purchase with Visa, Mastercard or cheque through the Theatre Program office, room 360 University College, at 204-474-9581. Tickets can also be purchased online HERE.
New music in several genres will be created by Juno award winner Gerry Atwell (Eagle & Hawk), while the script has been adapted by Megan Andres, Mike Bell, Sarah Constible, Gary Jarvis and Bob Smith. Professor Bill Kerr will provide dramaturgy services, and the show is being directed by a team including Leith Clark, Brenda McLean and Bruce Michalski, led by Theatre Programme Professor Chris Johnson.
