The Dead Guy

Pictures this: you have been given 1,000,000 dollars and you must spend it all in just seven days. Not only that, but a camera crew will follow your every move and broadcast every second of your adventures on national television! There is only one catch: at the end of the week, you die—and the viewing audience gets to choose how!

This weekend, the William Woods University Theatre Department is going to explore this crazy scenario with their second mainstage show of the season, a play aptly titled The Dead Guy. The cast auditioned in the middle of October and they have been rehearsing five days a week since then to prepare for their performances!

 

The show opens tomorrow (Thursday the 5th) and runs through Sunday the 8th. Show times are 7:30 pm Thursday-Saturday and 2:00 pm on Sunday. Ticket prices are as follows:

Adults: $12

Seniors (age 62+): $10

Faculty/Staff: $8

Students: $7

Children (ages 6-12): $6

For the WWU students enrolled in the LEAD program, the play counts as a 2-pt LEAD event! Tickets can be purchased ahead of time by going to www.showtix4u.com or calling the box office at 573.592.4267, or you can wait and buy your tickets at the door.

I can’t wait to see this show! The plot sounds very intriguing and I’m sure everyone will do a wonderful job.  I’ve definitely missed getting to be a part of the shows this semester, but I’m so excited to see my fellow theatre students perform!
