Trinity presents play in SA
Trinity University’s Human Communication and Theatre Department will present “The Robber Bridegroom,” a musical written by Alfred Uhry and Robert Waldman, based on the novella by Eudora Welty, directed by Stieren guest artist Tim Hedgepeth, with music direction by Jim Worman and choreography by guest artist Michelle Pietri.
A musical fairy tale set in the 18th-century Mississippi, “The Robber Bridegroom” is the story of Rosamund, the beautiful daughter of a rich country planter who is wooed by Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of the woods. The bawdy love story has twists and turns that include an unconventional case of double-mistaken identity, an evil stepmother, and a pea-brained henchman, all of which combine to create a rollicking country romp.
Performances will be held in the Stieren Theater, located in the Ruth Taylor Theater Building on the Trinity campus. Opening weekend is Friday, Feb. 17, through Sunday, Feb. 19, with performances continuing from Wednesday, Feb 22, through Saturday, Feb. 25. Curtain times are 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, and 7 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $6 for students.
