MANKATO – Minnesota State University, Mankato's Department of Theatre and Dance will open its first 2021 Mainstage production, “Sense and Sensibility,” Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Based on Jane Austen’s novel, this play takes place in England in the early 19th century, but playwright Kate Hammill’s story is a fast-paced take on the classic.
“Hamill retells this two-hundred-year-old story with the energy of a car chase scene from an action movie, mixed with the brave theatricality of twenty-first century performance,” says director Vladimir Rovinsky.
Rovinsky joined the faculty in the Department of Theatre and Dance in August from St. Cloud State University most recently, but he has worked across the United States as a director, actor and teacher. He has also worked in China, Canada, Puerto Rico and Russia.
“Sense and Sensibility” runs Feb. 17-20 and 24-27 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 20, 21, 27 & 28 at 2 p.m. in the Ted Paul Theatre at the Earley Center for Performing Arts, Minnesota State University, Mankato.
Tickets are $17 regular, $15 for seniors ages 65 and older, children under 16 and groups of 15 or more; and $12 for Minnesota State Mankato students.
The Box Office is open 4-6 p.m. weekdays in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center, or buy single tickets online at MSUTheatre.com. The Box Office line is 507-389-6661.
