APSU Department of Theatre and Dance to put on “Dark of the Moon” to close the season

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Long before the “Twilight” saga or “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” examined the complicated relationships between mortals and monsters, there was the story of a young witch named John who fell in love with a human girl named Barbara.

Their doomed affair, set in a superstitious community in the Smokey Mountains, is the focus of Howard Richardson and William Berney’s 1945 play “Dark of the Moon.”

"Dark of the Moon" at Austin Peay State University April 9th-12th.

The popular drama opens at 7:30pm on April 9th, in the Austin Peay State University Trahern Theater and runs through April 12th, with a matinee at 2:00pm on April 13th.

The play, directed by Dr. Sara Gotcher, associate professor of theatre, will bring to an end the APSU Department of Theatre and Dance’s 2013-2014 season.

“Dark of the Moon,” with its supernatural elements, is considered a folk fantasy, with much of the dialogue incorporating an Appalachian dialect. It premiered on Broadway in 1945. The play is recommended for mature audiences.

Tickets are $5.00 for students/military/senior citizens and $10.00 for adults. To reserve tickets, please contact boxoffice@apsu.edu or call 931.221.7379.
