Orlando to perform Virginia Woolf’s novel.
Looking for something to do this weekend? Take a trip to the Kasser Theater, located on the campus of Montclair State University, to see the sure-to-be-amazing performance of Orlando. Orlando is directed by Cathie Boyd, with text by Virginia Woolf, adapted by Darryl Pinckney and original score composed by Craig Armstrong and Antye Greie.
The story, based in Woolf’s novel, follows a young hero through his transformations over the span of his life. Orlando tells the tale of the hero as he transforms through personality, love and even gender in this quest for “life and a lover.”
Orlando opens on April 10 for previews, during which Montclair State University professor Jonathan Greenberg will lead a pre-show discussion about Orlando. Free snacks will also be provided. After the discussion, Orlando will open at 7:30 p.m.
Orlando will be performed April 10-11 at 7:30 p.m., April 12 at 8 p.m. and April 12 at 3 p.m. Tickets are available online at peakperfs.org or at the Kasser Theater box office for $20. Undergraduate students at Montclair State also receive one free ticket to the show with a valid student I.D.
Refreshments are available at the concession stand before the performance but no food or drink is permitted inside the theater at any time. For light foods and coffee, Cafe Diem is located in close proximity to the theater and connected to the library. For a full menu available 24/7, the Red Hawk Diner is located on the far end of campus.
Tickets are available at the box office located in the Alexander Kasser Theater or online at the Peak Performances website, peakperfs.org. The Kasser Theater is located towards the front of campus next to the Red Hawk Parking Deck. Montclair undergraduate students are permitted one free ticket with their student ID. All tickets are $15. Parking is available in the Red Hawk Deck as well as the Transit Parking Deck across campus. Public transportation that runs directly in front of the Kasser Theater is also available.
