ATHENS, Ohio (Nov. 1, 2004) -- The Ohio University School of Theater is proud to announce the second production of its 2004-2005 season; George Bernard Shaw?s classic satirical comedy "Arms and the Man."
Shaw?s most popular play is a charming romp through misbegotten love triangles, ambition, patriotism and a case of mistaken identity. Set in Bulgaria, a solider barely escapes from battle during wartimes and finds himself hiding in the daughter?s room of the most prominent family in town. The plot?s madcap resolution is nothing short of romantic comedy at its finest.
"Arms and the Man" will be presented by Ohio University?s School of Theater Nov. 3 to 6 and 10 to 13 in the Forum Theater, located in the Radio and Television Building.
Regular admission for the production is $12 and $10 for students and seniors. For ticket information and reservations, call (740) 593-4800 or stop by the Fine Arts Ticket office in Kantner Hall 103, Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m.
"Arms and the Man" marks the Ohio University directorial debut of Jack Young the new head of the Professional Actor Training Program at the School of Theater. Hailing from Pennsylvania, Jack has served as artistic director of three different professional theater companies: The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, The Warehouse Theatre, and Duke Stage Company. He holds an MFA from the University of Washington?s Professional Actor Training Program. Mr. Young is also a certified fight director and has choreographed fights for over 80 productions across the country.
