With a nod to a successful past season and a determination to continue the mission of social justice on the stage, Gustavus Adolphus College announces the 2008-09 Anderson Theatre season. The season includes Topsy Turvy Mouse by playwright Peter Gil-Sheridan of the Laramie Project; Eugene Ionesco's absurdist play, The Lesson; The Other Shore, written by Chinese Nobel Prize winner Gao Xingjian; the Gustavus Dance Company in Range of Motion and, finally, Carlo Goldoni's comedy The Impressario from Smyrna.
A group of Gustavus Adolphus College and St. Peter area students have been spending the summer inside rehearsing for a premiere performance of the play "Maggie's Magical Cat & Other Catastrophes." Written by Gustavus theatre professor Amy Seham and Gustavus senior Maggie Sotos, the play will be performed five times between July 31 and Aug. 10 as part of the 11-day 2008 Minnesota Fringe Festival in Minneapolis.
