Comedy About Love and Marriage Hits SUU Stage
For Immediate Release: January 23, 2008
(Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah) The Southern Utah University Department of Theatre Arts and Dance will present Phillip Barry’s The Philadelphia Story, February 7-9 and 14-16, 2008. Directed by Richard Bugg, The Philadelphia Story follows Tracy Lord and the stumbles, confusion, and second thoughts that take place before her wedding.
Wealthy socialite Tracy Lord finds herself caught between her fiancé, her ex-husband, and a handsome journalist in this classic screwball comedy. While sparks and witty repartee fly, Tracy must choose which man will win her heart.
“The Philadelphia Story is a light-hearted gem of a play that explores the views of love and marriage through characters who are spirited and slightly eccentric,” says director Richard Bugg. “In the end the characters finally find out the people and values that are important to them.”
Sponsored by SUU’s College of Performing and Visual Arts and the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance, The Philadelphia Story will run February 7-9 and 14-16 in the Auditorium Theatre. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for General Admission, $8 for SUU Faculty and Staff, $5 for students/children, and SUU Students attend free with a valid Student ID.
