Emporia State University Theatre will present the regional premiere of “The Flick” by Annie Baker. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2014, “The Flick” takes place in a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts where three underpaid employees – Sam, Avery and Rose – tend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen.
Students from this area involved in the production are:
- Isabella Harvey, a sophomore Psychology major from McPherson, Kansas, is on the running crew.
- Malaree Hood, a junior Theatre major from Derby, Kansas, is on the costume crew.
“The Flick” is under the direction of Dan Matisa who joined the faculty in the fall of 2015. Nancy J. Pontius is designing the set and Elizabeth Kennell (senior, Belton, MO) is the lighting designer. Susan J Mai serves as costume designer.
“The Flick” runs March 2 through 5 at 7:30 pm. All performances will be in the Karl C. Bruder Theatre located in King Hall. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Memorial Union Ticket Office or by calling 620-341-6378.
