Charles Mee’s Extravagantly Emotional Comedy Plays October 27-29
Middlebury, VT—Middlebury College’s Theatre Department opens its 2011–12 season with Big Love, an emotionally extravagant comedy by OBIE Award-winning playwright Charles Mee. The play will be performed Thursday, October 27, Friday, October 28, and Saturday, October 29, all at 8:00 P.M., plus a 2:00 P.M. matinee on Saturday only, in Wright Memorial Theatre on Chateau Road.
Directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Cláudio Medeiros ’90, Big Love features 17 actors, all of whom promise to take you on a wild, fanciful rollercoaster. With costumes by Emma Ermotti ’12, set by Hallie Zieselman, and lights by Mark Evancho, Big Love is sure to transport the audience to a colorful, sensory universe that is bound to please adolescents as well as those who might have grown a little too forgetful of the intensity, beauty, and magic of falling in love—or of the deep generosity required to love life!
Tickets for Big Love are $12 for the general public, $10 for Middlebury College faculty, staff, alumni, and emeriti, and $6 for Middlebury College students. For the Middlebury College Box Office, call (802) 443-MIDD (6433) or go to http://go.middlebury.edu/tickets.
