Kasser Theater is ready for September.
While the summer is in full-swing, the folks at Kasser Theater are taking their months without performances to prepare for the upcoming season, which will also mark their 10th anniversary. The 2014-2015 season is sure to be flawless, so here’s your preview for the first performances coming in the beginning of the season. Although the performances specifically by Montclair State University’s Theater and Dance programs have not been listed yet, there are still many other shows ready to kick off the season.
The first show, opening on Sept. 11, is Imagining O. This show is directed by Richard Schechner and Benjamin Mosse with choreography/movement direction by Roanna Mitchell. Imagining O will be performed at the Kasser Theater on Sept. 11-12 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 13 at 8 p.m. According to the Peak Performances website, “Imagining O – part theater, part dance, part installation art – investigates sexuality and artistry, abjection and power as imagined by Hamlet’s Ophelia, O from Pauline Réage’s Story of O, and the ensemble.” The show will use the entire facility, including the stage, seats and even dressing rooms.
The next show that is sure to amaze Kasser audiences is Healing Wars. This show will run on Sept. 25-26 at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. and Sept. 28 at 3 p.m. Healing Wars is conceived and directed by Liz Lerman, with choreography created by Liz Lerman and Keith Thompson in collaboration with the Performers. According to the show’s description, “through spoken word, video, and dance, Healing Wars reaches across the centuries to connect the modern wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the American Civil War.”
Tickets for both shows are on sale now for $20. Montclair State undergrad students are also able to receive one free ticket with a valid student ID. Tickets are available online at peakperfs.tix.com or in person at the Kasser Theater box office, located inside the theater.
Parking is also available at the Red Hawk Parking Deck, located next to the Kasser Theater. This deck is at a fixed hourly rate and accepts payment of either cash or credit.
