UAF theater is off to a fast start this semester with four productions already slated at UAF Salisbury Theatre.
“We’re busy this fall, but that’s a good thing,” said Brian Cook, UAF assistant professor of directing.
The first show is Les Misérables, a musical about revolution, passion and dreams, based on the novel written by Victor Hugo. The show will be co-produced by UAF and Fairbanks Light Opera Theatre and will run Oct. 3-5 and 10-12.
“We haven’t had a musical in a long time so this is going to be good for the kids,” said Cook.
A ticket discount will be offered on the Oct. 10 performance of Les Misérables in exchange for donating at least three cans of food.
Following Les Mis, UAF Theatre will perform An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley.
An Inspector Calls is a story about an inspector that interviews a family in regards to a young girl who committed suicide. Show dates are Nov. 7-8 and 14-15 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov.16 at 2 p.m.
Split Knuckle Endurance, a world-touring acting troupe based out of Connecticut, will be working with UAF students to assist in putting on a show about a man stuck in the harsh environment of the Antarctic.
“This is going to be fantastic for the children because it’s a lot more than they have gotten to do in a long time,” said Cook.
The collaboration with Split Knuckle Endurance will be performed Nov 21-22 at 8 p.m.
In the Spring UAF will be putting on a show called The Ash Girl, a modern day Cinderella story.
