Please join Truman State University's Department of Theatre as they present their final Labshow of the 2017-2018 season: "Rapture, Blister, Burn" written by Gina Gionfriddo directed by Sam Andrzejewski. 

Synopsis:
After grad school, Catherine and Gwen chose polar opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rockstar academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the other's life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs—the prize being Gwen's husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals.

Tickets will go on sale Monday, March 26, 2018, in the Box Office, located in the Ophelia Parrish lobby. Admission is free, with no exchanges or refunds. 

**For out of town reservations only, please call the Box Office for more information.**

Box Office Hours: M-F 12 AM - 6 PM
Phone Number: (660) 785-4515

PLEASE ARRIVE PRIOR TO 8 PM, AS THE SHOW WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY ON TIME.

Each month we will have a theme and, most importantly, have fun with yoga! Each class is $5/child, and parents are free to watch or join in the fun (for free!) :)

March - Four Seasons Yoga
April - Yoga Obstacle Course (possibly even outside!)
May - Circus Yoga

Suggested ages are 3-9, but really it is up to you. If you think your child would enjoy it, please attend. And trust me, it's not a requirement for them to do it all. My son will be there (he's 4), and he mostly sits there or rolls around on his mat :) 

Bring a mat if you have one, or borrow one of ours. Just come and have fun!
