    “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”

    An American classic by Tennessee Williams

    Thursday, Nov. 15, 8 pm
    Friday, Nov. 16, 8 pm
    Saturday, Nov. 17, 8 pm
    Sunday, Nov. 18, 2 pm matinee

    This play, which premiered in 1955, has since become a classic of the American stage. Through the creation of such iconic characters as the wealthy southern patriarch, Big Daddy, his middle-aged football hero son, Brick, and Brick's beautiful but frustrated wife, Maggie (a.k.a. Maggie-the-Cat), Williams examines modern day deadly sins: mendacity, greed, homophobia, racism, toxic masculinity, ageism, and disappointment.-- all in one southern family, no less!

    What is "The Hype"? The Hype is a term for a gambler's move in the old card game--The Three Card Monte. What is "The Hype"? It is a new play based on some of the foundations of comedy. It employs characters and situations that have been used everywhere from Shakespeare to the Three Stooges and from opera to SNL. The play features young lovers, disapproving parents, and clever scoundrels. Come and share the first staging of this new play with us.

    FAT TUESDAY DEBUTANTES IMPROVISATIONAL COMEDY GROUP

    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.
