Culver-Stockton College to present musical: The Robber Bridegroom
Culver-Stockton College's theatre department will perform The Robber Bridegroom in the Mabee Little Theatre on Thursday, April 8, through Sunday, April 11. "The Robber Bridegroom is a show that relies heavily on the creative energy and collaboration of the entire company," says Jeff Kellogg, C-SC associate professor of theatre and director of the musical. "The people are the story, they have come together for a good time and they take the audience along with them." As the show unfolds, the audience is introduced to a gentleman robber played by Travis Dahlhauser, a rich planter played by Zach Martin, his lovely daughter played by Kathy Holstein, a wicked stepmother played by Whitney Colston, and a selection of other oddballs. Woven into their tale is romance, mistaken identity, shady business deals, stolen love, and a murder or two. The Robber Bridegroom will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 8, through Saturday, April 10, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 11 in the Mabee Little Theatre. Ticket prices are $8 for adults, $6 for non-C-SC students and $5 for C-SC students, faculty, and staff. For more information about Fine Arts events or to reserve a ticket, call 573-288-6346 or e-mail email@example.com. The full story is available online.
