The Skidmore College Department of Theater is pleased to announce its Spring 2014 production, If All the Sky Were Paper directed by Lary Opitz. Performances are April 10-13 and April 17-19. All shows are in the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater on the Skidmore College campus at 8 p.m. except Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
If All the Sky Were Paper tells the story of war from the viewpoint of the men and women on the front lines, affected civilians, and loved ones on the home front. From the Revolutionary War to the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, people have captured the horror, pathos and intensity of warfare in their letters. Tens of thousands of these letters have been handed down from generation to generation. Best selling author Andrew Carroll established the Legacy Project through which he has collected thousands of war letters. Carroll created this piece of verbatim theater based upon many of these letters.
Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 for students and senior citizens. Call the Skidmore Theater Box Office at (518) 580-5439 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations.
