Former Creighton Students Return to the Stage
The F-Troupe Collaborative will be performing “The Dumb Waiter” and “The Zoo Story” July 23rd through 25th; July 29th through August 1st; and August 5th through August 8th at 7:30 p.m. at Creighton University’s Lied Center for Performing Arts Studio Theater.
F-Troupe Collaborative is a group of Creighton University Alumni theater majors who continue to craft their art with the values they learned during their undergraduate studies at Creighton University. Creighton supports these former students by granting them access to Creighton University’s Lied Center for Performing Arts Studio Theater to help encourage the arts in the Omaha community.
“The Dumb Waiter” is a classic one-act play by Harold Pinter that reflects the silence and violence of language between two hit-men. Michael Arch directs Brian Hardie and Jon Purcell in this play.
Will Davis directs Josh Mullady and Noah Diaz in Edward Albee's “The Zoo Story.” “The Zoo Story” was Albee's first play written in 1958. It is a simple play focusing on isolation, loneliness, social disparity and dehumanization in a commercial world.
Paired together in the F-Troupe Collaborative’s series, the two plays demonstrate worlds that unfold beyond characters’ control and showcase a dark edge that is seldom tackled on stage in Omaha.
Admission is $10 at the door. Reservations can be made by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
