The Miner League Theatre Players at Missouri University of Science and Technology will finish the spring semester with four performances of “Twisted Tales of Poe” this May.
Performances will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 5; Friday, May 6; and Saturday, May 7. A matinee performance will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 8. All performances will take place in the Black Box Theatre, Room 138 Castleman Hall, located at 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
The Miner League Theatre Players’ performances of “Twisted Tales of Poe” will be directed by Jeanne Stanley, associate professor of arts, languages, and philosophy at Missouri S&T.
“Twisted Tales of Poe” by Phillip Grecian is an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s original works. The play is performed as a live radio broadcast performed in front of an audience. The Miner League Theatre Players will recreate the sounds of old-fashioned radio broadcasts with sound-effects and music. The play will include recreations of four of Poe’s tales—“Tell Tale Heart,” “Cask of Amontillado,” “The Raven” and “The Black Cat.”
Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students. To reserve tickets, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets cannot be purchased through the Leach Theatre Box Office for these performances. The Black Box Theatre has a maximum capacity of 65, so reserving tickets in advance is recommended. However, tickets will be available for purchase at the door the day of the show if seats remain.
The performances are made possible by a special production arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.
