This season, faculty and staff members can take advantage of half-price discounts on tickets to three Mainstage productions. Single tickets to Mainstage shows will be sold to faculty and staff members for $5 apiece, half the regular $10 admission price. All evening performances are at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.
The Mainstage series for 1996-97 continues Nov. 21-24, with "Steel Magnolias," directed by Robsham Theater Arts Center Production Director Howard Enoch. Robert Harling's play was the inspiration for the recent popular movie about a group of Southern women who share joys and sorrows in a small-town beauty parlor.
From April 23-27, Robsham will feature the popular musical "Little Shop of Horrors," by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, in which a florist's assistant plays nursemaid to a blues-singing, man-eating plant. The production is directed by Assoc. Prof. Stuart Hecht (Theater).
Beginning Dec. 13, the Boston Liturgical Dance Ensemble - the University's resident dance company - will present its annual performance of "A Dancer's Christmas," a celebration of the Christmas season in dance and song. It will be performed at 8 p.m. Dec. 13, 14, 20 and 21, and at 2 p.m. on Dec. 15 and 22. There also will be a special children's performance Dec. 21 at 2 p.m.
The Robsham Dance and Theater Company will present "Dancers at the Robsham" on May 2 and 3 at 8 p.m. The group, now in its fourth year, will perform a range of styles and disciplines.
In addition, Robsham will offer three productions in its Bonn Studio Series: David Mamet's "Speed-the-Plow," at 8 p.m. Dec. 5-7; "The Triumph of Love," by Pierre Marivaux, at 8 p.m. Feb. 18-22 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 23; and Lanford Wilson's "Burn This," at 8 p.m. April 10-12.
Tickets are available at the box office between noon and 6 p.m. two weeks prior to each show, at 7 p.m. the night of a performance, and at 1 p.m. before a matinee. The box office may be reached at ext.2-4800.
