Raisin in the Sun
WILLIAM CAREY UNIVERSITY PRODUCTION: A RAISIN IN THE SUN

January 19, 2017 – 7 p.m., Center for the Arts, Theatre.

This production is a collaboration between the William Carey University Theatre program and the Chipola College Theatre Production students.

A Raisin in the Sun is a play by Lorraine Hansberry that debuted on Broadway in 1959. The story tells a black family's experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago's Woodlawn neighborhood as they attempt to "better" themselves with an insurance payout following the death of the father. The widow, Lena Younger, wants to move out of their apartment into a house in a more genteel neighborhood. Her eldest son, Walter, aspires to be an entrepreneur. Daughter Beneatha hopes to go to medical school. Though their aspirations collide, they try to find a way to retain their family's cohesion. The New York Drama Critics' Circle named this the best play of 1959.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.chipola.edu/boxoffice beginning December 19 or at the CFA Box Office beginning January 10. $8 for adults and $6 for ages 18 and under.

Southern Fried Funeral

FALL THEATRE PRODUCTION: SOUTHERN FRIED FUNERAL

Thursday – Sunday, October 27-30, 2016

7 p.m. Thurs-Sat, 2 pm. Sun, Center for the Arts, Theatre

 

Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces -- that is if they don't kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family -- Southern-style. Tickets may be purchased at the CFA Box Office or online at www.chipola.edu/boxoffice beginning October 5. $8 for adults and $6 for ages 18 and under.  For more information, contact the Box Office at 850-718-2420.
