C-SC theatre department opens season this week with performances of ‘The Dining Room’

Dining Room

CANTON, Mo. — Culver-Stockton College’s theater department will offer performances of “The Dining Room” by A.R. Gurney this week.

In the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, this comedy of manners comprises a mosaic of interrelated scenes with settings ranging from the 1920s through the 1970s — some funny, some touching, some rueful. The actors change roles, personalities and ages as they portray a wide variety of characters. Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events. Intermingling swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes blend into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity

Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 22-24 and a 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Sept. 25, in the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center. This production is directed by David Lane, lecturer of speech and theatre education, with production design by Andy Trusley, assistant professor of theatre. 

Admission is free to C-SC students, faculty and staff. Admission for the public is $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. For more information or to buy a ticket, contact the box office at 573-288-6346.
