Friday, Oct. 17, 2014


Kansas State University Theatre will present the play "Miss Julie," adapted by Craig Lucas, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23-25 in the Purple Masque Theatre.

In this new adaption of August Strindberg's classic drama, mistress of the house, Miss Julie, and her servant play a dangerous game of seduction in an effort to relieve themselves of their trapped lives. Using sex, money and everything in between, the two battle each other in a struggle for power and escape. The play is directed by Fatmah Al-Qadfan, a master's student in drama therapy from Kuwait.

Tickets are $7 for adults; $6 for faculty and staff, military and seniors; and $4 for students. Taxes and applicable fees may apply. They can be purchased in person at the McCain Auditorium box office, open from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or by phone at 785-532-6428. Tickets also may be purchased online at http://www.k-state.edu/theatre. Fees apply to phone and online orders.

The Purple Masque Theatre is in East Stadium, which is just west of the K-State Student Union and the university's parking garage.

Students in cast of "Miss Julie" include:

Hannah Miller, senior in theatre, Gardner, as Miss Julie; Kelsey Coffroth, junior in theatre, Louisburg, as Kristine; and Mat Ellis, senior in theatre, Manhattan, as Jean.
