Here’s another programming note for your students. We have an incredibly talented University Theatre, and the Daily Deac is a huge fan. We have a production opening this week and running through the end of September, and we want to encourage your students to go and show their support for the actors, directors, scene painters, costumers, and every one in the WFU Theatre family who make magic happen on stage.
Details below. There is also a beautiful brochure about the 2014-15 season.
THESE SHINING LIVES by Melanie Marnich
Directed by Cindy Gendrich
7:30 pm September 19-20 & 25-27, 2014
2:00 pm September 21 & 28, 2014
In the 1920s and 30s, “girls who wanted to work” could get good-paying jobs painting the radium dials on watch- and clock-faces. Part fairy-tale, part tragedy, These Shining Lives chronicles the stories of these “radium girls,” and their life-changing friendships. A luminous play about curiosity, greed, heroism, health, time, money, and hope.
