ETBU Department of Theatre Arts Presents Eurydiceby Mike Midkiff
MARSHALL, Texas (1/29/13)- The East Texas Baptist University Department of Theatre Arts presents Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl in the Black Box Theatre located in the Jenna Guest Music Building. The performances will be held February 7-10, 2013. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. nightly (Thursday-Saturday) with a matinee scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. Seating is general admission. Tickets are $5 or free with an ETBU student identification card.
"Eurydice is a contemporary retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth from classic mythology; this time, the story focuses on Eurydice's reunion with her deceased father in the underworld and Orpheus's struggle to reclaim his bride,” said ETBU Assistant Professor and chair of the Department of Theatre Arts Traci Ledford.
Award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl brings to life this touching story of family, love, and loss with a mixture of poetry and pop culture that has been described as wildly imaginative, weird, rhapsodically beautiful, quirky, lush, and deeply affecting. Music, memory, and menace all figure prominently in this version of one of the most famous love stories of all time.
Ledford added, "Limited seating is available, and the show is expected to sell out. Please reserve your tickets early, and be advised that there is some mature content.”
Reservations are required: call 903-923-2294 or visit the website at www.etbu.edu/theatre to reserve seats.
Note: All performances are sold out, two performances have been added for Monday (February 11) and Tuesday (February 12) at 7:30 pm.
