"Our Town" to open season at Stephens

Friday, September 17, 2004 | 12:00 a.m. CDT; updated 7:50 p.m. CDT, Saturday, July 12, 2008

The Stephens College theater department will open its 2004-05 season today with a 7:30 p.m. production of “Our Town” at Macklanburg Playhouse.

Students and faculty in the department, which was recently ranked fourth in the nation by the Princeton Review, are excited about this season’s plays.

“We’ve always known we have a good program,” said Brett Prentiss, the play’s director. “The number four ranking is great for us. We’ve been ranked seventh in the past, so needless to say, this is very exciting.”

Prentiss described “Our Town” as a “heart-warming, Pulitzer Prize-winning play about life in small-town America.” The play will be staged at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays for the next two weeks, with a matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $4 to $5 for students and $8 to $10 for general admission and can be purchased at the Macklanburg Playhouse box office at 100 Willis Ave.

Other plays at Stephens this season will include dramatic and romantic comedies, musicals and Greek tragedies — from “Dangerous Liaisons” and “Baby” to “Electra” and “You Can’t Take It With You.” For more information, call the box office at 876-7199.
