Theatre Department Presents “Enchanted April”

The Truman State University Department of Theatre will present “Enchanted April” at 8 p.m. Feb. 26-March 1 in the James G. Severns Theatre located in Ophelia Parrish.

Four women, all seeking revitalization from the dreary February rains of 1920s London, rent a small medieval castle in Italy. Two are glad to leave their insipid duties and unresponsive husbands behind. The third wishes to sit in the sun and replay her youthful memories, and the bewitchingly beautiful fourth desires to have seclusion from all her adoring suitors. Amid the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, four lives are transformed and resuscitated by the magic of San Salvatore.

Admission is free. Tickets can be reserved by phone at 785.4515, by e-mail at or at the Theatre Box Office between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday in front of the James G. Severns Theatre in the lobby of Ophelia Parrish.

Joan Mather, professor of theatre, will direct this main stage production. “Enchanged April” is by Matthew Barber adapted from the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim. Call 785.7333 for more information.
