CU Theatre Department To Open Season With ‘Leading Ladies’
From Cameron University's Office of Public Affairs:
Cameron University’s Department of Theatre Arts kicks off its season from October 2 to 5 with “Leading Ladies,” which will serve as Cameron’s entry in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at 2 p.m. on Sunday in the Cameron University Theatre. Tickets are $12 each; $10 for senior citizens and active-duty military. CU students are admitted free. Tickets can be reserved in advance by calling 581-2478.
“Leading Ladies” is the story of Jack and Leo, two English Shakespearean actors who find themselves down on their luck. When they learn that an elderly woman in York, Penn., is near death and will leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews, Steve and Max, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. There’s only one hitch: when they get to York, they discover that Steve and Max are actually Stephanie and Maxine, so they continue on – in drag.
