Theater finishes Fall 2016 with classic

A beloved classic tale, opened- Dec. 1 and will continue Dec. 2-3 and Dec. 8-10 in the University Theatre.

After rave reviews for Julius Caesar in October, the theater has set its sights on "Little Women," the tale of a family trying to keep itself together when the father goes off to war.

A holiday-themed dinner will be served before each showing of the play.

"It’s been a really challenging semester," Dr. William Doll, Director of University Theatre said. "I really like the idea of this play. We’ve really been working on the dinner theatre."

The meal will include chicken cordon bleu, beef tips with noodles, green beans, carrots, potatoes, a salad bar and dessert.

Dinner will be served at 6:45 p.m. followed by the play at 8 p.m.

The story is argued to be feminist but has been able to stand the test of time as a classic.

"I think it’s a beautiful play with some incredibly touching moments," Lindsey Jones, the actress who will portray, Hannah, the cook said.. "It has been a wonderfully challenging journey searching for the truest essence of our characters."

The people working on the show have shown to be helpful and supportive to one another, which is the sort of emotion that can become easy to notice throughout the play.

"It has been a wonderful experience," Jaslyn Diaz, the actress who will play the mother, said.

"I love every single one of my cast mates. It’s been a tough rehearsal process, but the relationships that we have created with each other make it easier."

Everyone involved had something to say, but all agreed that Doll was helpful and understanding throughout the entire project.

As of now, the play is only in rehearsals, but it will officially open Dec. 1 and continue through Dec. 3. It will then come back Dec. 8-10.

There will also be a single performance on Decc. 4 during the day, which will include a lunch served at 12:45 with the play following at 2 p.m.

For the general public, tickets will cost $20, $15 for those who are ASU Art subscribers and $12.50 for Angelo State University students or ASU Activity Card holders.

Anyone who wants to reserve a ticket or receive further information can call the number 325-942-2000.
