Performing Arts Center Presents “Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)” April 12-21
The Performing Arts Center presents an exuberant comedy and original revision of Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet in its presentation of Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) Friday, April 12 through Sunday, April 21, in the PAC Studio Theatre.
The plot involves Constance Ledbelly, a drab and dusty academic, who deciphers a cryptic manuscript she believes to be the original source for the tragedies and is transported into the plays themselves. She visits Juliet and Desdemona, has a hand in saving them from the deaths the Baird had planned for them, and finds out what these women are all about. In true Shakespearean spirit, Constance plunders the plays and creates something new, all the while engaging in a personal voyage of self-discovery. The play is rated PG-13 for adult themes and mild language.
Performance times are Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm. Tickets prices are $7 for general admission and $5 for senior citizens and students.
