Where Science and Theatre Converge

A female astronomer, an opera singer, and a teen foreign-language learner cooped up in a small New York apartment search for words – to express their yearnings, frustrations and, ultimately, their love.   When the pressure gets too high, they explode.  What bonds hold us together as lovers, family, and friends?  Humans have always looked for answers in the Night Sky!

Join us as this question is explored in Night Sky, a comedic drama by Susan Yankowitz, directed by USM Theatre Professor Assunta Kent.  Performances to be held at USM's Russell Hall on the Gorham campus October 10-13.

Tickets go on sale one month prior to opening night; the USM Theatre Box Office opens on Sept. 10.  Prices are as follows:
$15 general public
$11 seniors, USM employees and alumni
$8 students 
Special $5 matinee: Saturday, Oct. 12 at 2 p.m.
