Black Hills State University theatre will kick off its 2013-2014 season with the comic drama “Mauritius” Oct. 10, 11, and 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Woodburn Hall Theatre. A special performance will be held Thursday, Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Dahl Fine Arts Center in Rapid City.

Written by Theresa Rebeck, the well-known television writer who created the hit series, SMASH, the production follows the discovery of two of the most valuable stamps in the world and the characters who will lie, cheat, betray, and perhaps even worse, to possess them.

The intriguing drama is directed by Dr. Pamela Wegner, professor of speech and theatre at BHSU, set and lighting design by Bert Juhrend, associate professor of theatre, and stars BHSU students: Hannah Kloiber, marketing and speech communication major from Parker, Colo.; Tyler Steffens, speech major from Box Elder; Nicolas Nettle, English major from Spearfish; Kassi Blue, speech communication major from Rapid City; and Joe Geyer, mass communication and speech communication major from Rapid City.

Ticket prices are: general admission, $8 and seniors, $6. For more information contact Wegner at Pamela.Wegner@BHSU.edu or 642-6696.

The theatre program’s next production is a holiday performance written by BHSU alumna Jessica Jhurend, a graduate student at Adelphi University in Long Island, who recently won the 2013 Donald Everett Axinn Awards in Dramatic Writing for her play “Vida Mortis.”
