Ibsen’s brazen portrait of a disenchanted newlywed examines female identity and the tradition of marriage. As Hedda struggles to find meaning and purpose in her existence, how will she affect the world around her? What’s a girl without options to do?
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE *Subject to change; performance rights pending.
MUSICAL by Rebecca Feldman, Jay Reiss, William Finn, and Rachel Sheinkin
April 4–6, 2019 @ 7:30 PM || Duhawks: FREE; General Admission: $15
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box
IMPROV by the Loras Players’ resident improv troupe
May 10–11, 2019 @ 7:30 PM || Duhawks: FREE; General Admission: $5
An evening of student improvisation and sketch comedy. Students armed with the sword of humor compete on the comedic field of the St. Joseph stage. Join us and let us tickle your funny bone!
