    Directed by Bill Kennedy

    An American classic from the playwright of A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE and CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF. Amanda Wingfield and her two children—Tom and Laura—are living out their lives in a sad St. Louis apartment. Each has a way to cope with the gloom. Amanda cherishes the memory of a happier life in the South. Tom escapes to the movies and dreams of a career as a writer. And Laura? Laura loses herself…and finds herself …in the world of her glass menagerie.

    “The Skin of Our Teeth”

    A Play by Thornton Wilder
    Directed by Bill Kennedy

    April 12-14, 2018 8 pm
    April 15, 2018 2 pm

    We bring this season to a close with a work by another American master. Thornton Wilder, who wrote OUR TOWN and THE MATCHMAKER (the basis of HELLO, DOLLY!) finished THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH the month following the attack on Pearl Harbor. As with OUR TOWN, he played with theatrical conventions while telling the story of George and Maggie Antrobus and their children as they attempt to survive such perils as the Ice Age, the Great Flood, and World War. How will humanity pull through? By the skin of our teeth.


    Since 1995, the Fat Tuesday Debutantes have been entertaining audiences all over campus.  We play a variety of improvisation games such as those seen on “Whose Line is it anyway?” and “Wild N Out.” We usually practice for an hour each week, Tuesdays at 5 pm in SPH 127. You can receive 1 hour of TH100/300 credit.  We perform 3 shows per semester for the public.  Our semi-annual charity event, "Will Act For Food," has been very successful and is about to celebrate 20 years of helping local food pantries and ARCO.

    All performances begin at 10 p.m. in Huntington Recital Hall.
