Final ISU Theatre show opens April 26

by Debra Gibson
ISU Theatre's final production of the academic year opens Thursday, April 26, in Fisher Theater. On The Open Road will be this year's Second Stage (ISU Studio Theatre) selection, with 7:30 p.m. performances scheduled for Thursday, April 26; Friday, April 27; and Saturday, April 28; and a matinee slated for 2 p.m. Sunday, April 29.

On The Open Road was written by Steve Tesich, who also wrote such well-known films as Breaking Away, The World According to Garp, American Flyers and Eyewitness. On The Open Road chronicles the journey of two freedom seekers, Al and Angel, in a nation divided by a second civil war spawned by the second coming of Christ.

The ISU Studio Theatre presentations are student-produced on a minimal budget. This year's play is directed by Sean Kehoe, a senior from Monticello majoring in performing arts. Tickets for On The Open Road, $3 for adults and $1 for students, can be purchased at the Iowa State Center ticket office or through Ticketmaster.
