Rehearsals are ongoing for the upcoming Fairmont State University School of Fine Arts Town & Gown Summer Theatre Production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific.

 

“Town & Gown Summer Theatre is an important educational, as well as entertaining, endeavor. The School of Fine Arts hires students from Fairmont State and other colleges and high school interns, and all learn to work as a team to bring about a successful production,” said Peter Lach, Dean of the School of Fine Arts. “Part of the University’s mission is to strengthen the educational, economic and cultural well-being of our region. The School of Fine Arts is proud to partner with Prickett’s Fort State Park to provide outdoor theatre for North Central West Virginia. We also are proud to salute our nation’s veterans through this summer’s production.”

 

“I always look forward to directing productions at Prickett’s Fort because the community is so involved and enthusiastic--from those in the audience to those in the production. We appreciate the loyalty and support of the community,” said Director Jeffrey Ingman, a faculty member in the FSU School of Fine Arts.

 

Performances will be at 8 p.m. on July 6, 7, 8, 12, 13 and 14 at the Prickett’s Fort Amphiteatre. Tickets are $14 for general admission and $12 for veterans and members of the Armed Forces and their family members. Tickets are available from the Box Office by calling (304) 367-4240.  For more information, visit www.fairmontstate.edu/tickets.
