Salina Community Theatre is offering 100 seats at $10.00 plus tax for each matinee for its upcoming production of Clybourne Park. Tickets must be purchased at the box office by either check or cash. These tickets are made possible by a grant from the Salina Arts and Humanities. The matinees will be February 15 and 22 both at 2 PM.
Clybourne Park is a Pultizer and Tony winning play by Bruce Norris. Told with insightful humor and resonance for our time, the play takes place in two decades fifty years apart — 1959 and 2009. It is a parallel piece to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, recent produced at Central High School.
After each Sunday matinee, the cast and members of the community will hold a conversation with the audience about the subjects of the play: community, neighborhoods, race, gentrification, and economics. Members of the cast spoke last Monday to a diversity conference held at K-State Salina, also the sponsor for the production.
To purchase tickets, stop by the box office between 11:30 and 5:30 Monday-Friday. For information, call 785-827-3033. The play is recommended for age 13 and older due to adult themes and strong language.
