Mary’s Wedding Being Staged November 11-14 at SWOSU

Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s Department of Art, Communication and Theatre will soon open its next theatre production—Mary’s Wedding.

The show, set during World War I, is purposefully set to open on November 11 to commemorate Veteran’s Day. The production runs November 11, 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m. and November 12 at 2 p.m. in the SWOSU Hilltop Theatre on the Weatherford campus.

Mary’s Wedding, by Stephen Massicotte, is a beautifully written play, according to director Steve Strickler. On the night before her wedding, Mary dreams of a thunderstorm, during which she unexpectedly meets Charlie sheltering in a barn beside his horse.  With innocence and humor, the two discover a charming first love.  But the year is 1914, and the world is collapsing into a brutal war.  It is an epic, unforgettable story of love, hope and survival.

Reservations can now be made for the 90-minute production. Admission is free with a valid SWOSU I.D., $5 for adults and $3 for non-SWOSU students.  Reservations can be made Monday through Friday between the hours of 4-7 p.m. at the theatre’s box office or by calling 580-774-6046.
