Kent State University at Stark Theatre presents Anton in Show BusinessPosted Mar. 26, 2012
Kent State University at Stark Theatre will present Anton in Show Business by Jane Martin on April 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14 at 8 p.m., and on April 15 at 2:30 p.m., in the Kent State Stark Theatre, 6000 Frank Ave. NW, in Jackson Township. American Sign Language interpretation will be provided for the performance on April 15 at 2:30 p.m. Opening night is Scholarship Night, with proceeds benefitting Kent State Stark music and theatre students.
As three actresses of wildly varied backgrounds pursue their dream of performing in a San Antonio production of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, they take a tumble down the rabbit hole and into the strange wonderland of theatre. This satirical, backstage comedy conveys the joys, pains and absurdities of “putting on a play,” while poking hilarious fun at American culture. Viewer discretion is advised due to some sexual content.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $7 for non-Kent State students, children under 17 and senior citizens. All Kent State students are admitted free with a current student ID.
Tickets may be obtained beginning March 26. Reserve tickets online at www.stark.kent.edu/theatre or call the Kent State Stark Theatre Box Office at 330-244-3348, Mondays through Fridays from 1 to 5 p.m.
Directing Anton in Show Business is Kent State Stark Assistant Professor of Theatre and Theatre Director Brian Newberg. Louis Williams is the scenic and lighting designer, Susan Blurton is the costume designer and Ron Jarvis is the sound designer.
