In the footlights

The University Players 2013/14 season promises a little of everything—hysterical comedy, poignant drama, thrilling mystery, and theatrical fantasy.

Quiz winner to take in Earnest

It’s a great way to relax before final exams. Leslie Hernandez, a first-year chemistry student, won yesterday’s DailyNews trivia contest and earned two tickets to see the University Players production of The Importance of Being Earnest.

Hernandez’ name was drawn from all respondents who correctly matched the play’s quotation to its speaker:

University Players mount Wilde comedy at Essex Hall Theatre

The University Players production of Oscar Wilde’s comic masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest premiered Thursday at Essex Hall Theatre.

The play, which relates the romantic entanglements of wits Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing, continues through April 14.

A luncheon lecture with English professor emeritus Colin Atkinson will precede the Sunday, April 7, performance; a “talk back” session with director Leigh Rivenbark and members of the cast will follow it.

Drama student makes most of set design opportunity

Designing the set for the University Players production of Nine Girls was daunting, says fourth-year drama major Joshua Quinlan, but he got through it with the support of faculty and staff.

“I have learned so much from this experience—especially my mistakes,” says Quinlan, who plans to pursue graduate study in scenic and costume design.

University Players to stage thriller

University Players will present the thrilling and comedic mystery Nine Girls March 7 to 10 and 13 to 17 at Essex Hall Theatre.

It is a dark and stormy night when eight sorority girls meet at their mountain clubhouse, and discover that their ninth member has been murdered. Their quirky banter makes you forget the seriousness of the situation, and none suspect that one of them could be the killer—until Alice discovers a clue and confides in the wrong girl. Will the girls figure out the true identity of the killer? And how far will the killer go to cover her tracks?
