Experience the “Bright Star” musical November 15-19
Miami University’s theater department is putting on its next musical in Gates-Abegglen theater from November 15-19!
“Bright Star,” by Edie Brickell and Steve Martin, is “inspired by a true story…it tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives.”
All showings start at 7:30p.m., except for the closing Sunday performance, which begins at 2p.m.
"It’s wonderful to be directing again on the Miami Oxford campus. Our production team is amazing and our cast is so, so talented. It’s going to be an excellent night of theatre," said Bekka Eaton, the director of Bright Star.
Tickets can be purchased online or by contacting the Miami Box Office 513-529-3200. The Miami Box Office, located in Nellie Craig Walker Hall, is open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for walk-up purchases.
