'Shadow Box' To Be Performed in Scotland

Theatre department cast prepares for International festival


HSU Theatre students recently held the first read through for the next play of season, "Shadow Box," and there was an air of expectancy in the air.  The entire department was encouraged to attend the read through, which involves the cast staging a reading of the script.   

Not only is "Shadow Box" the next play of the season which opens April 7th, it has also been selected to be presented at the Fringe Festival in Scotland.  The Fringe Festival in Edinburgh is held over the course of three weeks in August every year, and is widely known as the largest arts festival in the world.   

Hardin-Simmons Theatre Department is traveling with the "Shadow Box" cast and crew to perform in Edinburgh. The experience provides a unique opportunity for students to perform in a foreign country and travel and explore a new culture, while honing their craft. 

Several fundraisers have helped students toward the goal of raising scholarship money, and donors can donate directly via a fundHSU page. 

"Shadow Box" is described as a moving play that explores the meaning of life and death through the lives of three terminal patients and the people with them in their final months on earth.  

HSU Theatre will be in Edinburgh, Scotland, August 1st-13th. Read more: http://fund.hsutx.edu/site/TR?fr_id=1231&pg=entry
