ASU Theatre Presents Award-Winning Dramady
University Theatre at Angelo State University will present the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatic comedy, “The Flick,” for its first fall 2018 production, beginning Thursday, Oct. 11, in the ASU Modular Theatre. Performances will be at 8 p.m. Oct. 11-13 and Oct. 18-20, with a Sunday matinee performance at 2 p.m. on Oct. 14. Tickets are $10 for the general public, $5 for non-ASU students, and free for ASU students, Arts at ASU subscribers and ASU Activity Card holders. The Modular Theatre is located in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Drive. Written by Annie Baker, “The Flick” won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and is described as a thoughtful drama with well-crafted characters, rendering lives rarely seen on the stage. In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely tuned comic eye, “The Flick” is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world. **For mature audiences. This production contains strong language and some sexual content. Under the direction of Ashley Meyer, director of University Theatre, the ASU student cast includes Zane Johnson, Dijon P.C.
