FHU to Present "Stories from Oz"

APRIL 24, 2014

Freed-Hardeman University’s theatre program will present “Stories from Oz” by Frank Baum and adapted by Cliff Thompson Friday, April 25 at 7 p.m., and Saturday, April 26 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The showings will be held in FHU’s Black Box Theatre. Admission is free for this children’s production.

The play will last approximately one hour. Those interested must visit the McDaniel House to obtain a ticket in order to reserve their seats. Seating is limited.

“‘Stories from Oz’ is a collection of six short stories chronicling a few of the adventures of a few characters that you know and many you don’t,” Thompson said.

Thompson is FHU’s director of theatre. He received a Ph.D. in educational leadership from the University of Mississippi and a bachelor’s degree in theatre from Harding University. He has spent 20 years in educational theatre, training students to work professionally.

The Freed-Hardeman University Theatre program strives to provide a challenging, creative environment built upon scholarship and practice in which all students may enlarge their artistic potential, and to assemble a community of believer-artists dedicated to impacting their world for Christ.
