NMSU THEATER DEPARTMENT PRESENTS TWO PLAYS

The New Mexico State University Department of Theatre Arts and the American Southwest Theatre Company (ASTC) will present two productions that will alternate performances from Feb. 25 to March 19.

The first production is "The Shape of Things," by Neil LaBute. When Adam begins to date a rebellious art student and discovers a new-found self-confidence, Adam's longtime friends don't appreciate the chilling changes.

"On the Verge," the alternating production, follows three Victorian female explorers who travel through time and space - from the depths of Africa to the New World to Terra Incognita and beyond. It is a wild and witty tale of yearning, courage and imagination.

Tickets are $8-$13, depending on performance time and date. For times and reservations call the ASTC box office at (505) 646-4515 or 1-800-525-ASTC.
