The first presentation of Missouri S&T’s 2009-10 Campus Performing Arts Series will be a stage adaptation of John Steinbeck’s classic Of Mice and Men. The performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall.
Tickets are $35 for adults and $25 for students. Leach Theatre is offering a $5 per ticket discount for groups of 10 or more. The first 75 tickets for Missouri S&T students are free to this event. Tickets are available online at leachtheatre.mst.edu/cpas/index.html.
The captivating tale chronicles the powerful friendship between two migrant workers, George and Lennie, as they toil to make their dream of a place they can call their own a reality. But as all too often happens, “the best laid schemes o’ mice and men” go awry in this timeless American masterpiece. The performance is by Virginia’s 75-year-old Barter Theatre touring company.
Leach Theatre will offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club,” one hour prior to the event, should tickets remain for the show. The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold for $10 each prior to the performance.
Of Mice and Men is sponsored in part by Robert and Susan Hooper. Additional funding for the Missouri S&T Campus Performing Arts Series is provided by the Missouri S&T Endowment for the Performing Arts, the Missouri Arts Council and the Maxwell C. Weiner Endowment for the Performing Arts.
