MANHATTAN -- The theater program at Kansas State University will present the play "As Bees in Honey Drown" at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 1-3 in East Stadium's Purple Masque Theater.

The play is being performed, directed and produced by K-State theater students.

Life, art and the practice of reinvention sum up the satirical comedy "As Bees in Honey Drown" by Douglas Carter-Beane. Loaded with betrayals, seductions and plot twists, the production is a look into the world of art and fame. The play also cautions to be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.

Tickets are $4 for students and children, and $7 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays; from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. weekdays at the K-State Student Union's Little Theater box office; or by calling 785-532-6428 during McCain box office hours.

K-State students participating in the production include:

Alexis Copeland, freshman in theater, Hays; Charles Johnston, graduate student in theater, Hutchinson; Andrew Ryan Winter, freshman in theater, Lenexa; Ryan Moya, freshman in open option, Monica Phinney, junior in theater, and Diana Watts, freshman in fisheries, wildlife and conservation biology, all from Manhattan; Patricia Blocksome, graduate student in theater, Ransom; and Mary Deaver, graduate student in theater, Shawnee, director.
