Department of Drama announces 2010-11 season
The Department of Drama in Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts has announced its 2010-11 season. The season’s productions will include the groundbreaking Kander and Ebb musical “Cabaret”; “Jungalbook,” a modern take on Rudyard Kipling’s classic story; “RENT,” a co-production with Syracuse Stage; the Ancient Greek comedy “Lysistrata”; Sam Shepard’s starkly funny dysfunctional family play “Curse of the Starving Class”; and composer William Finn’s autobiographical musical “A New Brain.”
“Through these vastly differently productions, we hope to further solidify the department’s status as a leader in artistic training while providing our community with adventurous theatre,” says Producing Artistic Director Timothy Bond.
Season packages are currently available at the Syracuse Stage Box Office at 820 E. Genesee Street from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday- Friday, or by calling the Box Office at (315) 443-3275. Season subscriptions are $95 (includes five plays plus “RENT”), and $85 for seniors. All shows will be performed in the Storch Theatre at Syracuse Stage, except for “Cabaret” and “RENT,” which will be performed in the Archbold Theatre, allowing students in the Department of Drama an opportunity to perform in a larger venue.
