Lock Haven University’s theatre group, the University Players, is already hard at work on their upcoming events. The group incorporates all aspects of theatre and has some great events planned for this semester.

The Players are beginning to plan a ten-minute play festival to kick of the fall 2012 season. The festival will feature plays written by Lock Haven students, and will potentially include read-throughs and basic productions. The tentative date is October 11 and 12.

Currently, the Players are planning their annual Haunted Studio, which is scheduled to take place on October 25 and 26. In previous years, the event has been held in either Sloan or East Campus and involves visitors walking through the building as surprises appear at every corner. More information to come as the date approaches.

The mainstage show, “The Good Person of Setzuan”, will be held on November 8 through the 10 and the 15 through 17 at 7:30 PM with additional shows on November 10 and 17 at 3:00 PM. The show, directed by Professor Sally Story, is about morality and humanity in the town of Setzuan, and will feature over twenty of the University Players’ actors. The production will also feature a unique perspective on the costumes of the early 20th century, designed by Professor Ramona Broomer, and an innovative set design by Professor Michael Slane.

Dangerously Improv, a group focusing on improvisation comedy, is looking for new members. The group, which meets every Thursday at 5:30 in the evening, plans to hold an event on December 6 and 7.

Outside of shows and events, the University Players meets every other Wednesday at 6:00 PM in Sloan 321. The next meeting will be September 26. If you’re interested in joining the University Players, acting or working backstage in the shows, or just finding out more, attend a meeting.

For more information about the club’s events, you can find them onFacebook (LHU University Players), or contact their president, Justine English, at
