THE CHILDREN’S HOUR
OPENS FRIDAY NIGHT
The Children’s Hour by Lillian Hellman addresses the insidious power of a lie in this riveting drama. When a student at an all-girl’s boarding school perceives she is being treated unfairly by the women who run the school, she fabricates a malicious lie about them that pushes relationships to the brink, tests assumptions, and challenges preconceived notions of the truth.
Written in the 1930’s, THE CHILDREN’S HOUR was inspired by a true story and was very controversial in its day due to its addressing of homosexuality. But make no mistake; the show is still very relevant today and will surely leave audiences talking about the devastating effects that lies and gossip can have on human lives.
THE CHILDREN’S HOUR runs September 6-22 with shows Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 5pm. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for students and seniors, and group rates are available.
FRIDAY, SEPT 6th-OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION, join the cast and crew in the lobby after the show for wine and cheese.
SATURDAY, SEPT 7th-TALK-BACK NIGHT, the audience is invited to stay for a post-show Q&A with the cast and crew. Plan on sticking around a little bit after the show for this event.
SUNDAY, SEPT 8th-STUDENT NIGHT, all student tickets just $10
SUNDAY, SEPT 15th-STARVING ARTIST NIGHT, tickets are pay-what-you-can on a first-come-first-served basis half hour before curtain
