KEARNEY – The University Theatre at Kearney and Alpha Psi Omega present “Lysistrata” Wednesday through Sunday at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. The student-directed performance is led by Mikayla Fulk, a UNK senior from Scottsbluff.
Written by Aristophanes and adapted by Will Huddleston, “Lysistrata” is an amusing account of a woman’s extraordinary mission to end a war using the most powerful weapons in the feminine arsenal. When she persuades the women on both sides of the brawl to join in her plight, it inflames a battle of the sexes that seems a rather unconventional – yet remarkably effective – road to a treaty for peace. “Lysistrata” is for mature audiences.
When: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 10-13; 2 p.m. Sunday.
Where: Miriam Drake Theatre, University of Nebraska at Kearney
Cost: Tickets are $10 for adults; $8 for non-UNK students, seniors and UNK faculty/staff; $7 per person for groups of 10 or more, and free for UNK students with a valid ID. For tickets, contact the UNK Box Office at 308.865.8417 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
