VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) — Theater students at the University of South Dakota will present four productions during the 2015-2016 season.
The students will open the season Sept. 25 with William Inge's comedy "Bus Stop." The production, which takes place in a rural diner just outside Kansas City, shows how bad weather can affect people's emotions.
The season continues with Mel Brooks' famous comedy "Young Frankenstein." Students will present this energetic musical starting Nov. 20.
The university's theater department then moves from hilarity to the shadowy world of playwright Martin McDonaugh as students present his dark comedy "The Pillowman" beginning Feb. 18.
The season will conclude with the production of "Assassins" that opens April 14. This Stephen Sondheim Tony Award-winning musical brings to life people who attempted or achieved the assassination of U.S. presidents.
