PORTALES—Eastern New Mexico University's Department of Theatre and Dance will present their second main stage production of the season, "Mia, Emma and Rose," at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, on the main stage of the University Theatre Center.
There is also a by-invitation-only Friday night production, followed by a reception and tours of the University Theater Center. This show requires formal dress.
The play was written by Janeice Scarbrough, chair of the ENMU Department of Theater and Dance, and will be directed by Anne Beck, assistant professor of theatre.
General admission tickets are $8, seniors 55+ $7, pre-college students $6, and ENMU students $5. The box office in the University Theatre Center is open from 12-5 p.m., and at 6 p.m. on performance nights.
"It is way to say thank you to all of our supporters," said Scarbrough.
This play was rewritten by Scarbrough after attending to a Playwright Intensive this summer in Washington, D.C. Therefore, even if audience members saw the play before, this will be an altered version.
The play has two new actresses from the previous version. The part of Mia is played by Laura Holder and the main character, Emma, is played by Hillary Reeves. The changes give "a whole different feeling to the play," Scarbrough said.
