(My favorite SHSU actor, Micah Taylor)

This week, the Showcase Theatre will be featuring four different productions. I found this out a little late—the first play of the week, God of Carnage, finished its two day run last night. However, there are still three plays left for the week! All plays start at 8:00pm, but it is best to arrive early. Tickets are on sale right now at the Theatre Box Office.

Fat Pig
By Neil LaBute
Directed by Michelle Ritter
July 27th and July 28th

Tom falls for bright, plus sized Nancy and as a result faces the ridicule and mean spirited jokes from his friends and strangers. How will Tom react to his friends cruel remarks and how does it affect how he sees both himself and Nancy?

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress
By Alan Ball
Directed by James Smith
July 29th and July 30th

This is a play about five bridesmaids and their interaction with each other at an extravagant wedding reception. The more they talk to each other the more they realize that, despite their outward differences, they really have more in common than they originally thought.  

The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged
By Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield
Directed by Calvin Hudson
July 31st and August 1st

The play title says it all… or does it?

All of these plays sound very interesting! Parking is available behind the Newton Gresham Library.
