UNK Theatre presents ‘Rehearsal for Death’

Rehearsal for Death10

KEARNEY – The University of Nebraska at Kearney Studio Theatre’s production of “Rehearsal for Death” will keep audiences guessing.

In “Rehearsal for Death,” written by George Batson, a mysterious letter and a misfired gun turn a play rehearsal into a whodunit.

The melodrama has a cast of characters ranging from the “has been” actress to the ingénue, and the local gossip columnist to the stalwart director.

“Rehearsal for Death” is at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (Oct. 8-11) and 2 p.m. Sunday (Oct. 12) in the Fine Arts Building Studio Theatre.

The play is directed and designed by members of the theatre honorary Alpha Psi Omega.
