'MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM' PREVIEW TO OFFER TALK-BACK SESSION
OSWEGO -- The Oct. 17 preview night of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at SUNY Oswego will feature an interactive post-performance discussion.
The crew and cast of the play will be joined by SUNY Oswego English professor and Shakespearean scholar Patrick Murphy and Laura Hess-Brown, assistant professor of psychology, to discuss elements of the play and field audience questions.
"We've found that these talk-back sessions help the plays to be used as teaching tools as well as entertainment," said Mark Cole, the play's director and chair of the college's theatre department. "These discussions have proven informative, popular and entertaining."
Curtain time for the show is 8 p.m. in Tyler Hall's Waterman Theatre. Tickets for all seats of the preview performance cost $5.
The production will open at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, and continue with 8 p.m. shows Oct. 19, 25 and 26. There are 2:30 p.m. Sunday matinees Oct. 20 and 27.
Admission for the regular run is $10 for adults; $9 for seniors, students and children; and $7 for SUNY Oswego students. Family packages for two adults and two children are available for $34.
For reservations or more information, call the Tyler Hall box office at 312-2141 or e-mail tylerbxo@oswego.edu.
