MAN OF LA MANCHA

The theatre and music programs of Sul Ross State University announced their spring musical, “Man of La Mancha,” with weekend performances April 13-29. The book was authored by Dale Wasserman, with lyrics by Joe Darion, and music by Mitch Leigh.

Dona Roman, professor of Theatre, directs the production, with musical direction by Dr. Donald Callen Freed, professor of Music and Dr. Jeffery Meyer, assistant professor of Music. Performances are slated in Marshall Auditorium, Morelock Academic Building. Curtain time is 8:15 p.m. for Friday and Saturday performances and 2 p.m. for Sunday matinees.

Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes and his 17th-century masterpiece “Don Quixote,” the musical tells the story of the “mad” knight Don Quixote as a play within a play, performed by Cervantes and his fellow prisoners as he awaits a hearing with the Spanish Inquisition.

“Man of La Mancha” celebrates five Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Composer and Lyricist.  After its success on Broadway, the musical was produced as major motion picture starring Peter O’Toole and Sophia Loren.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for senior citizens and children. Advanced tickets are on sale now, and reserved seating is available.  Advanced tickets may be purchased via sulross.edu/theatre. 
Please call (432) 837-8218 for reserved seating or for more information.

The theatre program at Sul Ross is guided by the philosophy that students will graduate with a university - level understanding of theatrical production.  It is driven by a passionate team of professors and students who create an inviting and engaging environment for learning the craft.

Sul Ross offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Theatre and a Minor in Theatre. Even if they've never set foot on a stage before, students are welcomed and immersed in all aspects of theatre, everything from writing plays to directing to the many details of production and even the promotion surrounding the performance.

 

 

Their skills are finely tuned and they are offered opportunities that wouldn't be as accessible at many other schools' programs. Sul Ross puts on a number of productions throughout the year with four key areas in mind: playwriting, musical theatre, bilingual theatre, and children's theatre.   Students learn the art of playwriting and take on the process of developing original works from script to stage. 

 

    

       

 

Sul Ross Theatre also teaches the value of working across programs to produce musical theatre and expanding a student's repertoire to the particulars of children's theatre. The emerging Latino Theatre Program has brought a national focus to Sul Ross.  Recently, the Sul Ross original production of Moises: A Modern-Day Tragedy by resident playwright, Liz Coronado Castillo, was invited to perform at the Region VI Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in San Angelo, TX.    Off Campus, the program is also very involved with the local community of Alpine, Texas and produces the Theatre of the Big Bend, a series of outdoor repertory performances through the summer against the beautiful backdrop of Far West Texas.
