22, 2007 --
The Arkansas State
University Theatre has released the schedule for the 2007-2008 ASU
Theatre season. The season
will open with “Wait Until Dark”
by Frederick Knott. A Broadway hit,
this claustrophobic suspense thriller plays upon everyone’s
worst fear of being alone in the dark with a maniacal killer.

Until Dark” are Friday-Saturday,
Sept. 28-29, and Tuesday-Wednesday, Oct. 2-3. All performances are at
7:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, or $10 at the door.
show in the season is “Beautiful Bodies” by Laura Shaine
Cunningham. The play takes place in Manhattan as six best friends rush
to attend a celebration. Tonight's the night of nights, as the girls
gather to rejoice in one’s new lover, to leave one’s unfaithful husband,
or to decide to have a baby on one's own. These "six in the city"
professional women fight for their female choices. Sparks and zingers
fly as love lives, secrets, and friendships go up in candle flames.
Performances dates for “Beautiful Bodies” are Friday-Saturday, Nov.
9-10, and Tuesday-Wednesday, Nov. 13-14.
All performances are at 7:30
p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, or $10 at the door.
Coming up in
2008 is “Proof” by David Auburn. Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and
Tony Award, “Proof”
combines elements of mystery and surprise with old-fashioned
storytelling to provide a compelling evening of theatre. “‘Proof’
is a smart and compassionate play about ideas,” said the New
York Daily News. “Proof” tells the story of a young woman
determined to solve the mystery of her father, a mathematical genius.
Performance dates for “Proof” are Friday-Satuday,
Feb. 15-16, and Tuesday-Wednesday, Feb.19-20.
