Theatre Department to Perform Lyrical Tragedy

The University’s Theatre Department will perform their second production of the season, entitled “Blood Wedding,” at 8 p.m. Nov. 13-16 in the James G. Severns Theater in Ophelia Parrish Hall.

“Blood Wedding” is a poetic, lyrical tragedy of love, fate and revenge, set against the Spanish landscape of Andalusia. It tells the story of a couple preparing for their wedding day, while the bride is still in love with another man, and the events that unfold throughout the performance.

Jon Ginder, senior music student, composed two of the production’s songs. Madison Chambers and Bailey Jones, theatre students, also composed choreography throughout the production. Student Rebecca Grow will play the synthesizer, and Robert Graber, professor emeritus, will play the classic guitar.

The production is free, and it is requested to reserve tickets in advance. Tickets can be reserved at the box office in the lobby of Ophelia Parrish from 12-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or by phone at 660.785.4515.
