Spring Production of "Great Expectations"
PLATTSBURGH, NY __ The Theatre Department at the State University of New York College
at Plattsburgh presents its spring production of Great Expectations
. Performances will run from Wednesday, April 6 through Saturday, April 9 at 8 p.m.
in the Hartman Theatre of the Myers Fine Arts Building.
Great Expectations was written by Barbara Field, adapted from the novel by Charles Dickens and is directed by Tim Palkovic, professor of theatre.
The play is a rich theatrical re-telling of the famous classic that captures the full flavor and style of Dickens' immortal novel. Using a simple unit set and making resourceful use of a brilliantly theatrical storytelling technique, the play conveys all the energy and warmth of Dickens' richly human store with cinematic quickness and fluidity. Shifting deftly from scene to scene and from place to place, the play involves the audience at every step, building steadily to the climax where Pip gives moving evidence that in growing up he has also come of age as a compassionate and admirable human being.
Tickets for general admission are $10; $7 for faculty, staff, senior citizens and non-SUNY Plattsburgh students; and $2 for SUNY Plattsburgh students with proper I.D.
