Final Summer Theatre production opens July 25July 16, 2012
The final production of the 2012 season of Emporia State Summer Theatre is a children's musical and includes a Saturday matinee performance.
Life isn’t easy when you are a bug and Pico the housefly knows this only too well. His best friend is mad at him, his girlfriend, a caterpillar, is going through changes and an enormous horsefly is terrorizing him. A clever new musical for the whole family, "U:Bug:Me" by Jeremiah Clay Neal is under the direction of Jim and Lindy Bartruff.
Emporia State theater alum Ben Williams will design the set. His wife, Susan Williams, also an Emporia State theater alum, will design the costumes.
The show runs July 25 through 28, and all performances are in the Karl C. Bruder Theatre in King Hall. Curtain time on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday is 7:30 p.m. The Saturday, July 28 production is a 2 p.m. family matinee. Individual tickets are available from the university box office at (620) 341-6378.
