Dinner and a Show: Ursinus College Theater Dance 2018

12 Angry Jurors

Written by: Reginald Rose
Adapted by: Sherman L. Sergel
Directed by: Domenick Scudera, Professor of Theater
Where: Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center, Lenfest Theater
When: Oct. 4 – Oct. 7

In the jury room of a murder trial, the sole dissenter in an 11-1 guilty vote exposes the other jurors’ personal biases and forces a dramatic re-evaluation of the crime. As timely today as it was when it was first written in the 1950’s, “12 Angry Jurors” is a compelling and provocative examination of the American judicial system.

Radium Girls

Written by: D.W. Gregory
Directed by: Meghan Brodie, Assistant Professor of Theater
Where: Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center, Blackbox Theater
When: Nov. 1 – Nov. 4

It’s 1926 and radium is a miracle cure, Madame Curie is an international celebrity, and luminous watches are the latest rage, but the women painting the watch dials are falling ill. Inspired by a true story, “Radium Girls” chronicles the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights the U.S. Radium Corporation responsible for poisoning its employees. Gregory’s drama offers an uncompromising and uncannily timely look at American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.

Ursinus College Dance Company Fall Concert

Produced by: Jeanine McCain, Associate Professor of Dance
Where: Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center, Lenfest Theater
When: Nov. 15 – Nov. 17

Join the Ursinus Dance Program for the Fall 2018 edition of UCDC, which will feature a variety of choreographic work by faculty members, professional guest artists and students.
