Celebrating a century of theater
ISU Theatre celebrates its 100th anniversary this year with six shows and a gala celebration. The season opens Oct. 3, when Spring Awakening takes the stage for a two-weekend run.
The Nov. 15 gala event will feature monologues, select scenes, singing and dancing during a two-hour showcase event at Fisher Theater (7:30 p.m.). Performances will include work by students, alumni, faculty and staff. The gala is free and open to the public.
Season tickets ($96 for adults, $91 for seniors and $65 for students) are available through Oct. 12. Contact ISU Theatre (email, 4-2624) for order forms if you did not receive one earlier this month via campus mail. Single performance tickets ($18 for adults, $16 for seniors and $11 for students, unless indicated) are on sale at the Iowa State Center ticket office, through Ticketmaster or at the door prior to each performance.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. on Sundays. With the exception of the final production, On the Verge, all shows run two weekends at the Fisher Theater.
A student-directed production, not yet selected, is scheduled for March 26-29. The time and location is to be determined. The show is not included in the season ticket package.
