UNCW Theatre Presents “The Children’s Hour”
Thursday, March 30
The UNCW Department of Theatre will officially conclude its 2016-17 season with Lillian Hellman’s “The Children’s Hour.” The play was written in 1934 and revolves around Mary, a student who tells a lie which shakes the foundation of the teachers and founders of a modest boarding school for girls. The play has been debated, banned and revised over the years.
“The Children’s Hour” will run March 30-April 2 and April 6-9 at the Mainstage Theatre in the UNCW Cultural Arts Building. Show times are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 for members of the general public, $12 for seniors, UNCW employees and alumni, and $6 for students, and are available at the Kenan Box Office on campus, online and at the door one hour before show time.
