Sep 21, 2010 | General News

Louisiana Tech’s theater department will host the performance of four plays for the 2010-11 season, including two Shakespeare performances.
This fall, the season will open with “Richard III,” which tells the story of Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who hopes to usurp the throne from his brother. The play will take place Oct. 27-30 and from Nov. 3-6.
In the winter, two shows will be performed: “KAB Man” and “So in Love! Opera Workshop.” The first is in conjunction with Keep America Beautiful, Keep Louisiana Beautiful and Keep Lincoln Parish Beautiful. The play tells the story of superheroes KAB (Keep America Beautiful) Man and KeeLaBreaux (Keep Louisiana Beautiful), who fight against the evil villains of the world of litter. “KAB Man” will be performed Jan. 11-15.
“So in Love! Opera Workshop” will be Feb. 9-12 and will feature Mozart’s “Bastien and Bastienna,” the tale of two estranged lovers who rely on a magical spell to reunite them. Selections from “Kiss Me, Kate” will also be presented.
Lastly, Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” will be shown April 27-30 and from May 4-7. In this play, Macbeth is visited by three witches, who prophesize his rise to the throne, and their visit prompts him to take the crown, no matter what the cost.
All plays will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Stone Theatre. Season tickets can be purchased for $50 for adults and $20 for seniors and children under 18. Season tickets will be on sale through the run of “Richard III.” Individual ticket prices are $10 for adults, $5 for students with a valid ID, $6 for children and $5 for seniors.
