N102 Theatre at The King’s University
The fall 2018 main-stage theatre production at King’s will be Kelsey Krogman’s adaptation of The Great Divorce, an allegory on heaven and hell by C. S. Lewis of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and Screwtape Letters fame. Ghostly characters travel on magic bus from their dismal grey town (which may be Hell or Purgatory) to a shining landscape on the outskirts of Heaven. There they meet joyful figures who invite them to abandon the attitudes and behaviours that keep them trapped. Aaron Krogman (who directed Tartuffe in Fall 2017) directs students in King’s Ensemble Production courses. Students in Stagecraft are the production crew, led by production designer Daniel vanHeyst.
Tickets ($15 general / $10 students and seniors) will be available at The King’s Bookstore, at the door, and online.
