The local theater community is invited to get a more in-depth look at Illinois State University's wonderful theater program with their "Theatre Encounter." This "Encounter" is structured as a sort of theater appreciation class for area theater fans and supporters, with both previews before the show and discussions afterwards.
There are two choices: Pay $75, which includes tickets to all five fall shows on ISU's schedule (THE MERCHANT OF VENICE by William Shakespeare, THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE by Deborah Brevoort, ELECTRA by Sophocles, THE MARRIAGE OF BETTE AND BOO by Christopher Durang, and A FLEA IN HER EAR by Georges Feydeau), as well as pre- and post-show discussion sessions for those plays; or, pay $110, which includes tickets to all ten shows in the 2011-12 school year, plus the fall and spring dance concerts and the fall Theatre Encounter classes. (See the schedule of all ten plays and the two dance concerts here.) That second option will require another $25 for the spring Encounter sessions when the time comes.
Classes will meets most Thursdays from September 29 through November 17 at 6:45 pm in the Center for the Visual Arts, room 133,
