During Hanover College's 2013-14 theatre season, there will be five shows: The People, Yes (this weekend), 70 Scenes of Halloween (Oct. 24-27), The Importance of Being Earnest (Nov.), Harvest (Feb. 2014), and Zastrozzi (March 2014). All performances are to happen in the Parker Auditorium at Hanover College, located at 484 Ball Drive in Hanover, IN.
Tickets, when they become available, will be $12 for adults, $10 for seniors 65 and over, and $5 for youth. All tickets can be purchased at the Hanover College website or at the door.
Hanover College will open with The People, Yes, a production based on the Carl Sandburg long poem. Tales of the Great Depression and humans willingness to survive during the struggle are brought to life. The People, Yes, runs Oct. 4-6.
Appropriate for that time of year, 70 Scenes of Halloween will occur. Bloodthirsty monsters and sugar-craving children chase a young couple on Halloween night. That production haunts Oct. 24-27.
Around Thanksgiving time audiences will learn The Importance of Being Earnest. Oscar Wilde's farce features characters taking on the role of "Earnest" and lending themselves to trivial situations. Importance will go on Nov. 22-24.
Starting in 2014, the science fiction-drama Harvest will open. Body parts are up for grabs as the rich shower the poor bodies with gifts and Interplaneta Services devours them all. The work will be staged Feb. 13-16.
Finally, Hanover College will present Zastrozzi, in which no one knows what is more dangerous - a criminal mastermind or a visionary. Find out that answer March 20-23.
